Agreed. But beware, because we could end up with having a lot of
blue users and maintainers. To make the thing more efficient, a
good mental approach should be developed. Maybe making a request
for removal special in some ways? I think there are two things
to consider:
	-make the fact as public as possible, so both the userbase and
	the other developers be notified. Publicize at least two weeks
	before the deadline.
	-educate users and developers about how can they motivate the
	maintainer to do her job well: the RFR report should include
	a text explaining why the package would be removed, what
	one can do to prevent this, what is the right attitude when
	one communicates with the maintainer
