Not really. The BTS knows whether the package has been removed entirely,
i.e. from all of oldstable, stable, testing, and unstable (in that case
you'll see that it doesn't list a maintainer for the package), but it
won't be possible to have anything more discriminating than that until
at least a substantial part of the work for version tracking is done.
