That'd be a bit inconvenient to maintain for us, plus it'd require
further changes in dak, making the parser a bit more complex, which I
think ftpmaster wants to avoid.

However, it's trivial to generate a list of maintainers:

  % wget -qO- http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/hints/transitions.yaml |
    sed -ne 's/^[^-]*- //p' | dd-list --stdin

Maybe, if there's enough demand, we/somebody could set a cron to create
such listing.
