Or 3) people just haven't read it yet.

I'm guilty of 3.  That email hit the lists while I was on vacation, so I
must have missed it when I was playing catch-up.  But I've read it
now :)

I personally do like the concept.  I think co-maintainership is both
beneficial and important.  And yes, I plan on comment more as individual
details come out.

Overall, I think what is documented in that page is a pretty good start.
Some of the questions definitely need answering (like tiers, and whether
co-maintainers can approve other things, etc) but I think they're a bit
too far out to discuss them right now.  We need to get bugzilla auto-CC
fixed and the new VCS and package database in place first, and those
aren't small things.
