OK, I was doubtful because when a package lacks maintainer, maybe it's
not fully tested and some bugs could be opened and, then, rarely fixed
(as they would be assigned to maintainer-needed). On the other hand, I
would hope that preserving those packages in "testing", their users
wouldn't expect it to be as "stable" and "properly maintained" as a
package marked "stable".
