I believe there are good chances that this kind of people realize that
there's a problem at some point, if they're particularly interested in
this package: either they're directly affected by the RC bugs
affecting this package (it was removed for a reason, uh), or they'll
miss some new feature implemented in a newer upstream version and will
wonder why it's not in testing yet, or they'll suffer from some other
bug and will have a look at the PTS.

In all of this cases, "$PACKAGE is not in testing anymore" is likely
to be a stronger "help is needed" signal for them than the mere
presence of RC bugs.
