rage is part of e17.

You might be planning to do that later on, but if you would seperate from 
the list the orphans that must remain in community because they are 
(make)depends of other packages and to list these packages (and their 
maintainers) that depends on orphans, you might speed up the adoption of 
these orphans, as logically, a maintainer should make sure that all his 
packages' dependencies are maintained by himself or another TU.
