  What he means is that when people are listed automatically as
Maitnainer/Uploader, the fact that the package is well maintained may
hide that a particular DD do nothing at all, and is in fact MIA.

  Last-action of a DD is computed using many ways, uploads of package
where he is in Maintainer/Uploader beeing among them, and it hides real
MIAs from the mia tracking scripts, and that's bad, because it prevent
good QA work, and generate more and more bitrot.
