Agreed, IMO the role of the champion is to help the podling get
started (which might include help find a sponsor, mentors etc) and
they might only follow things from afar once that's done.

It's different from a mentor who's supposed to stay active until
graduation, but in some cases the role/people overlap, without
problems.
