How about just getting rid of the concept of owners entirely? That would make things a lot simpler. Currently, it looks like the only purpose of owners is to assign publishers. IMO, we should add a new right for letting privileged users add publishers to newsletters. This would be more in line with MediaWiki's user permissions system.
Yes, reducing permissions to Publishers might make sense. We still have the problem of what happens when there are no Publishers active, who can give permissions to new publishers. I guess the admins of the site can always act?
