Grant Ownership

I am running into the problem of reassigning ownership of spaces and content via the Web Client.
While this is possible via Alfresco's APIs, the UI does not provide this capability.
My current workaround is to remove the "read-only"-attribute from the property sheet of the "cm:ownable" aspect in  "/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/web-client-config-properties.xml"

Like so:

   <config evaluator="aspect-name" condition="cm:ownable">
         <show-property name="cm:owner"/>

This will at least make the "Owner" field writable in the View Details > Modify Properties form.

Naturally, this is less than optimal.
I was wondering if someone has thought of a better solution to this problem. Maybe a custom action might do the trick?
IMO, the ideal solution would be enhance the "Invite" dialogue of the "Manage Space/Content users" action with an "assign new owner" option.
Anyway, I'd appreciate any insight into or ideas regarding the matter.
