I think Champion is a good name, especially for the pre-podling phase.

Seems to me it often takes more than a mere Coordinator to ensure that
the proposal reaches the vote to accept a podling.

For the current issue - ensuring podlings don't get lost on the way to
graduation - maybe a "shepherd" is needed.

But I still think the original Champion could be tasked with the role.
If they were keep enough to act as Champion to ensure that the project
was accepted as a podling, one would hope they would be keen to ensure
that the podling eventually graduates.
