QA is not a solution to everything. The problem Tomas is trying to
counter here is the idle/slacking arches. If the arch is active but have some
concerns regarding the stabilization then let the maintainer deal with
it. This is the way we do it now anyway

Thats really their problem. Arches can always remove themselves from the
bugs. No need to care about stale bugs. If the maintainers don't care
then we(arches) don't care.
