I wouldn't. I don't keep tabs on every package that my packages depend
on. One of them could be orphaned and I would never know.

No; I haven't investigated it. That's why I am asking to let those
maintainers decide. Thinking up yet one more way to make the decision
without involving them seems like a poor strategy. There is no need for
me to figure out whether there is a specific example or not. Instead,
just tell the maintainers, and give them the option.
