Bug Description

At the moment, when I want to abdicate ownership of a project, I go to:
  https://edge.launchpad.net/<project>/+edit-people (linked from the Maintainer "edit" button)

And then I select the "I do not want to maintain this project" checkbox. Then I have to delete my user name from the maintainer field before I am able to submit the form.

It would be nice if I didn't have to both edit the maintainer field *and* check the check box in order to abdicate ownership. One should be sufficient.

Brad and I discussed this issue in the original review. We could update the view to ignore the field since we know the value is not needed, but I think the form is confusing though. Updating the UI to deactivate the field would be best--the user can see the old value and know it is not being used, but knows he can change his mind.
