The @author tag implies _authorship_.  If we had an @owns tag, I'd fully
agree with you.  If some people can't distinguish between authorship and
ownership, that's their business.  I personally find it
interesting/useful to know who @author'ed the current file.

As for CVS logs, they are rather ephemeral things in my experience.
Whenever a file is renamed/repackaged, the history is lost.  Sometimes
CVS modules are re-imported (as with Avalon, and xml-cocoon ->
cocoon-2.1) and everything is lost.
