We have instructional designers and others that share content in Commons. When an individual who has been doing this leaves, so does their content.
Because ownership is associated with an account, another individual has to upload that module so that they can take over and make the updates. Also, the end users need to remove the previous module, and add the new owners module in order to stay updated.
If ownership of that module shared in Commons could be transferred, that would solve a lot of issues.
