The manner in which Christian Marillat orphaned his GNOME packages has
sparked a lot of discussion, and I have not seen anyone countenance it
as a wise or friendly course of action.  (I'm not sure it was intended
as such, to be honest -- it looks more like a paroxysm of frustration.)

The proper procedure for orphaning packages is documented in the Debian
Developers' Reference:
