As no one person has the ability to even come close to being an expert on
the entire code base, I'd vote for the lieutenant model.  Not necessarily
someone that "owns" a piece of code, but more likely someone that knows
most about a particular group of applications, resources, channels, etc and
can make informed decisions about direction and appropriateness of things
that need committed, delayed or seriously reworked.  Maintainer is, to me,
an ugly name for the task, it reeks of code-ownership, which is almost never
a good thing.

But, that's just my opinion.
