I think the current system works just fine. This is part of the process. It's easy for an active maintainer to keep control of a namespace and there is also a path to recover a namespace if necessary -- the nuclear option being: modules@. It makes perfect sense to me how it is. Nothing stops you from creating a similar namespace (with a x on the end or ::Plus, like I did) if you want to make a fork.
No changes required.
Also note that when you make forks on github (for example); you're making a brand new namespace every time too. It'd be much like if every module on CPAN was JETTERO::Net::IMAP:... though.
