   Formalizing the maintainership of various open source projects, which
   includes both process improvements to the technical work and political
   improvements to the governance, is a large step in the direction of
   performing such projects with best practical practices.  Wouldn't
   that, in turn, be a good liability shield for companies that provide
   this software to their customers?

That sounds a lot like Cygnus Support's original business.
