I thought a maintainer is responsible for keeping his packages up to date?
Policy version 3.0.0 is out since 1,5 years now and if we decide to send
RC bugs on all packages with a lower Standards-Version and wait 2 months
that's a good chance to find packages whose maintainer is AWOL - all other
packages should have been updated until then.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
