Fairly sure this is not a limitation in Telepathy/Sugar.

The only activity I'm aware of using a hub and spoke topology is  
Write, and I believe a recent AbiWord release has improved the  
collaboration code so that allows a re-election of a new hub, of the  
original goes away (also supports text colour highlighting for  
different users) – very keen to see this land in an image and give it  
a test.

Other activities that support some form of collaboration like Chat,  
Browse, Etoys, TurtleArt, Arithmetic, Maze, Pippy, etc, etc, don't  
care who started the activity first, or who goes away.
