While I can not really step up to maintain it, I can answer your last
question.  Removal of Emacspeak is simply not acceptable.  There is an
alternative impelementation, but I am not sure if it is actively
maintained by its upstream still.  Emacspeak has its fanbase, and we
should provide (up-to-date) packages to satify them.
