Four approaches for idea ownership worth considering:
Owned ideas with fixed leadership
Owned ideas with distributed decisions
Shared ideas with elected leadership
Shared ideas with emergent leadership
Owned ideas can be more effective for clarity of vision and simpler governance decisions but can be problematic for enabling changing leadership and wider contributor participation and have higher risks for a lack of openness.
Shared ideas can be more effective for removing openness risks and enabling changing leadership and wider contributor participation but can be problematic for vision alignment and handling governance decision complexity.
Web 3 ecosystems looking to remove centralised points of control and increase the amount of open source protocols, infrastructure and tooling available in their ecosystem could benefit from supporting the execution of shared ideas.
