I thought so... I think the reason we (Haskellers) got this special case 
for the Haskell-Hackage packages is we thought we had a cool tool that 
would do it all automatically, and everyone (Arch and/or Haskell I 
guess) was excited about it.  But evidently something in the technology 
or the process stopped/didn't work quite that well (yet) (And 
until/unless it does, using the usual AUR rules on ownership makes sense 
to me.) -- I'm not sure what sort of obstacles remain currently: 
probably Don knows but is busy with other work...
