I agree with the above reasoning, but Petteri raised a good point about
"old bugs". I suggest that for old bugs we swap the maintainer and the
arch team so that the maintainer is added to CC and the arch team is
assigned the bug. If and or when the bug is resolved, the maintainer can
reassign the bug again.
