I think it is most efficient for one person to maintain all stable trees,
as e.g. the selection of what needs backporting is often pretty
common between the trees. So if someone wants to urgently take
over from me, I'd be handing over the 4.4 tree at once. But (just
like Andrew stated fro XenServer) since I'm doing the backports
for our internal purposes anyway, I would be happy to continue
pushing the results to the respective upstream trees.

Not just yet - there's certainly going to be a wrap-up 4.3.4.
