A MIA-check is not something instantaneous. It takes several months. So
it's not really possible...

I don't agree with this. In a team, it's difficult to notice that one
member disappeared. And lack of involvement in one package doesn't mean
being completely MIA. As co-maintainer I wouldn't want to remove someone
if I'm not sure that he won't come back.
