You can create organisations on github nowadays.

for example, you could create a haskell-platform organisation, with some users
having admin rights over the whole organisation. Then you have the per repository
level rights, where you can set who are maintainers.

Personally, i don't see the lead developer oriented view as a problem; it's not
that hard to update couple of links (cabal homepage/repository link on hackage
for example) to point to a new lead developer, an organisation, a project page,
or another site altogether.
