My proposal goes like this:

  1) iff unmaintained && (some other conditions, let's not worry for now)
       remove from Debian
  2) iff unmaintained && bugs > Y
       move to snapshot.debian.net

snapshot.debian.net already automatically contains all packages removed
from Debian, so all we need to do for 2) is to remove the package.

Can you see why I think this is good enough? Users can still get the
packages if they want them.
