As long as the new maintainer continues with the package quality, I can
see just advantages.  The lag of the updates is only thing I currently
don't like in gdm.  Everything else is in the finest state possible. 
Why can't the current maintainer (Ryan) become a co-maintainer with the
gnome team, while Josselin becomes the main maintainer?  This way Ryan
will still improve our lovely gdm when he has time, while everybody else
can work bringing us the bleeding edge gnome software.
