If the diverging packages are only those from your recent mail (a 
handful), then it seems to me we have a clearly followed policy 
already. So 'must' is as good as 'should'.

OTOH, not having pkg-perl-maintainers at Maintainer: would prevent the 
bug reports reaching the group, right? I'd say this is not good at 
all, and must be fixed. So, 'must' it should be, then. :)
