Absolutely not.  "Co-maintainer" implies a relationship that cannot exist
unless the other party gives signs that they've *agreed* to it.

Someone can take over the package as the *sole* maintainer while making it
clear that they would be happy to be a co-maintainer for the original
maintainer once they become active again; but adding oneself as a
comaintainer without *explicit* consent is a sleazy bypass of our normal
(QA, TC) processes for changing a package's maintainership.
