Should we depracate the owners node in nuspec

When you upload a package to the NuGet Gallery, the <owners> node is irrelevant and in fact misleading. I think there's a case to be made that the owner is the one that the Gallery defines and that doesn't necessarily match up with the <owners> node in the nuspec.

This does lead to the question, what about packages that aren't in the gallery, such as on a file share. I think the standard file metadata probably captures that information well enough. And I don't think this will be as common as having such packages be in a gallery.

Thoughts?
