Answering to first part, I assumed that you would tell me to remove
myself if you expect that (Now I now you expect).

About 'ownership' - the roles in the launchpad have more meaning as
permissions to particular part of the functionality. To lead the
project you do not need even account there, until you want to use any
of these functionalities.

I am currently experimenting a little with the project I created, and
I plan to request a removal next week, as I will not have time to do
anything else with that. I hope it satisfies you.
