I disagree. There is one thing that is worse than having no package: 
Downloading the fucking thing, installing it and then you discover
that it does not work. So you now have to download the source etc.

As packages that are not used will never be checked by a user and
if the maintainer does not use it himself I would like to not have
the package at all. At least not as an official package - move it
to somewhere in the pool where only developers can see it. 

If somebody asks for it - fine. Move it back, send it to him and
make him check the package.
