Having mandatory debian/watch files in each an every package would at
least be a opportunity to detect MIA maintainers.  But only if two
premises are met: 1) upstream has to be debian/watch-able and 2)
upstream has to release a new version now and then.  These points are
the problems that stand in the way of a regulation that would demand
debian/watch files.
