More or less, yeah, they do. If you're doing the work, you don't want
others to stand in your way because, hey, you don't "own" it, and they
want to be part of it too.

That would probably just result in a lot of bickering, flaming, and no
actual work being done.

That's too vague. If you're really serious about this, work it out first
before suggesting it.

(The reason I'm saying this is that it's my believe such a measure would
either be impossible to implement, or take way too much time to do, time
that could be more valuably spent by actually doing the work)
