My point is/was that what you suggest sounds more like co-maintenance to
me. So, people who dislike the current sponsoring system (i.e. leaving
the sponsoree as the uploader in changelog) can co-maintain instead.

Maybe we are proposing the same set of actions, and just giving it
different names (your "improved sponsoring" is my "co-maintenance").

Obviously you are free to do what you like when you sponsor.  A
different, and more contentious point, is what the project should
prefer. Given the state of near-collapse (by ratio of requests to active
sponsors) of the sponsoring system, I would hesitate to impose too many
requirements the process. As we both know, one person's innocuous
requirement (e.g. let's all use dh7) is another persons reason to walk
away from an activity.
