Well, viewing it from a different angle (from the view of a package
maintainer), a removing from testing is quite often considered as
unfriendly act. (No need to discuss that with me. ;)

So, I consider my mails as last wake-up call for the maintainers, and
only if the fail to act on this, I'd really go forward to removals
from testing.

(Next one where you could IMHO remove now is ppxp, as the mails to
that maintainers are a bit older.)
