I like that idea, at least as a supplement to multiple maintainers ... 
there are a lot of packages where I could help solve problems, but 
wouldn't want to be a maintainer.  I'm sure this applies to many others.
That would be really useful for bug fixes, for example.

But for big areas like gnome, kde, etc, it would be nice to have teams 
of people who focus on maintaining those packages.

My 2 cents :-)
