Sure, all the objects in a given schema should be owned by a role which
all the admins of that schema are members of.  I really see this as a
sensible step from ACLs since ownership implies additional permissions
(which can't otherwise be granted, otherwise it wouldn't matter so much).

We do this quite a bit and it's annoying when someone forgets to change
the ownership of something they created.  Since we do this largely on a
per-schmea basis (and different schemas have different admin groups,
which can overlap) getting people to remember to 'set role' doesn't seem
likely to practically improve things much.  I've considered writing a
cron job to periodically fix all the ownerships and permissions but then
having actual exceptions becomes a pain.
