I'm not against of that. I believe it could be a good way out
when people leave or can't/stop to work on their packages. Missing
all members of a team is a little bit harder :D

I know some people prefer being the only owner, we could decide
case by case but finding packages that can be part of a group and
a team that can manage it could help either in bug management.

Easy groups could be for instance:
developer libraries
toolchain & co.

But the real problem is that some packages could lay
on more than a group. For insntace, game and kde games
or educational and some games... and so on.

I thought that a first try could be to have mentor and their
padawans seen as a team to maintain packages they've released
togheter. From that it should be easy to move maintainership
from one team member to another. But as ennael said that
could be more work for mentors.

So i don't have a real solution :) but something to discuss on...
