I thought a commonly used option was

(v) Start a thread with subject "${MAINTAINER_NAME} cannot properly maintain his
    package" (or, at the your option, something more explicit) to have them fix
    their package before the thread becomes the #1 hit on a google search for
    ${MAINTAINER_NAME}.
    (This is when I got the idea for bug #200905, only that it was the lintian
     check page that was top google ranked.)

But then, other suggestions might be friendlier.

Cheers

T.
