The OP proposed to remove packages that are a) orphaned, and b) have
less than 20 user in popcon.  It is these criteria I object to, not the
process of removing obsolete packages. 
As you seem to agree with that, it really seems that we agree here.

BTW: it would be nice if you could take a bit less agressive tone in the
discussion.  That would maybe improve the atmosphere a bit.  Nobody is
attacking you personally, we are just trying to have a civil
conversation (at least I am).
