I see no reason why recognized specialists, experts and general people with interest shouldn't have the ability to jointly "OWN" articles.
I suspect that such would be a recipe for many troubles. The "general people with interest" would soon infuriate the specialists and experts, even if they are not there to grind axes and the more so if they have strong POVs.
Troubles comparable to having an "encyclopedia that anyone can edit"?
Edit: There's all sorts of ways one can approach an enforced owning of articles, really. How about if someone or a person with colleagues gets an article to FA status? I can't see the harm in giving them ownership of the article so long as they are reasonably active, seeing as how they obviously know what they're doing.
