The point isn't space (we have plenty).  The point is package foo has no 
maintainer and has problems.  With no one to fix the issues, the package 
should be removed (to give users a decent experience by avoiding broken 
packages) and to increase security (by punting packages with security 
problems but have no one to fix them).

It is all about manpower, I don't see a technical solution here.
