It's probably a good idea to make an announcment if a package is about
to be dropped, so that others have a chance to maintain it.  This would
of course include any prior maintainers.  But if the package's maintainer
thinks it should be removed, and no-one else volunteers to maintain it,
then I don't think anyone should be able to say "No, let it sit there
and rot instead".
