You're oversimplifying- remember that packages don't have "a
maintainer", they have multiple maintainers. I can add this, but it
will make these pages a heck of a lot slower to load, which is the
biggest issue. One thing that comes to mind that would be an overall
report, and a "mine" report for each one...

That would make the generic nature of these reports a lot harder,
and/or involve me sinking quite a bit of time into making something
generic that formats sizes. Deal with it for now. :)
