That includes package (co-)maintainers who acquire 'watchbugzilla' access
in pkgdb and handle incoming problem reports.

It is a perfectly fine scenario for somebody, let's say "a power-user", with
interest in a Fedora package to join as a co-maintainer and focus on
problem reports and testing of the "product" we release, even if there may
be no interest in 'commit' access to the Fedora package. That doesn't
"ship [...] package maintainership responsibility over to the QA
community", but only shows how open the Fedora Project is for commitment
from interested people.
