I can pull out examples of this not holding true:

* all the giant locking in drivers
* all the giant locking in VFS

People did pop up and claim ownership of things they cared about. Some
stuff died, some stuff didn't. There was enough of a motivation by us to
kill giant off in these pathways so things could continue to evolve. We
didn't leave the GIANT crutch in forever.
