Probably you're right. I don't have an opinion in this.

What's the advantage of that against the current way of doing things? That is:

| Maintainer: Debian Games Team <pkg-games-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org>
| Uploaders: Maintainer <email address>

And why debian-devel-games@lists.debian.org instead of
pkg-games-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org ?
