It's very easy for the sponsor to fix this:

	* create a file klecker:~/.forward-sponsoring-foo, containing your
	  email address and the person your sponsoring

	* set the Maintainer: field to be 
		Maintainer: Foo (sponsored by Bar) \
	  (unfortunately mail to people.debian.org doesn't seem to use the
	   nifty filters)

This assumes the sponsors going to be more involved with the package (and
the sponsee) than to just upload a package once and then forget about it.
