There are plenty of packages in Debian where the sponsored maintainer
can't upload themselves at all. That's the rule not an exception.

Yet they are and clearly should be listed as a (sole) maintainer of the
package in question. It's their work, and that's how we appreciate that.
Also, this is how they get bug notifications.
