If it has no other packages depending on it, that could be an option, although I suspect the grace period should be longer than a few weeks.

But if it does have other packages depending on it, that's a problem.  Should the maintainers of those other packages take it on?  Or should they be dropped too?

Not to mention that a LOT of ports have no maintainer...which would make either of the above approaches have a severe impact.
