Ben Burton, the maintainer of the KOffice package is, according to 

apt-cache pkgnames | xargs apt-cache show | grep "Maintainer: Ben Burton" |  
wc -l

maintainer of 143 packages (and that's just unstable).

I think everyone who upgraded unstable while the ABI transition wasn't 
completed yet, knew that some packages would come in later.

One of the packagers, I think Adeodato Simó, posted that they will announce 
the transitions completion for those who want to stay on the save side.
