Orphaning the package it not the final outcome.  The goal is to get packages
salvaged.  See the "two activities" explained here:

that.  If the package is orphaned, the salvager can adopt the package (ITA).

For how long ? The proposal includes collecting ACKs so that any pointless
delay can be skipped, resulting in the package being salvaged sooner.
