Exactly, and I don't see anyone complaining about the product - just 
wondering if some number of months could be shaved off the process.

So far it isn't clear where the months of process can accumulate.  If it 
is mostly in iterative work on a few packages, how does changing their 
ownership do anything to speed things up - unless the concept of 
ownership gives the right to open and distribute the work that is 
causing the bottleneck in the process?
