Speaking on behalf of myself, I think it would be smart if we started
shedding some packages from extra that we don't really use- we
shouldn't feel obliged to maintain them just because someone else put
them there and stuck us with them. Package maintenance can be a real
bore if you aren't even interested in the package you are working on.
So phrased shortly- if you don't use it and other devs don't have
interest, throw it to unsupported where it may or may not get picked
up by a TU.
