No. We're talking here about silence *from the entire Debian developer community* in response to a call for orphaning. That says nothing about whether the package is orphaned. It may just mean you've managed to send your request to the wrong place (or gotten it stuck in a mail queue somewhere).
It would have been wrong if it was the *only* course of action that I did.
Which was not. I mailed the old maintainer, waited for a long time, then
finally asked the QA team to orphan the package, which is what is
currently required. The mail to -devel was just an extra precaution, but
(with all due respect) seeing the kind of reaction like yours, probably,
I shouldn't have do it at all...
