You could suggest it on the package's AUR page.
yes, I could ask to do it for dependent packages such as https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xombrero/ even while I'm not using it.
I could ask to do it for https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qtwebkit/ , https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/webkitgtk/ / https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/webkitgtk2 even while I'm not using those packages.
Some maintainers simply are responsible without somebody mentioning it, e.g. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/claws-mail-git/, btw. the only related PKGBUILD I'm using myself.
Another package maintainer disabld webkit usage, after I informed about the issue and after I get in contact with upstream, who also will fix the issue, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/guitarix-git/ . I'm not using this package, but install guitarix2 from official repositories.
By sending it to the ML, it looks like you're trying to discuss or push for a general decision.
Actually there could be PKGBUILDs where I'm not aware of the issue, so I can't add a comment, that's why I ask on this list. It should not be enforced by a rule, but maintainers of PKGBUILDs should become a sense of responsibility, so I mentioned it on this list.
PS: Maybe Claws from git still builds using with webkit, if it#s installed, but it's not a dependency.
