This was previously implemented in and removed from AUR a long time ago.
I guess there was a reason for this.

I disagree that AUR needs additional moderators. That's what among
others TUs are for, this is why they are called TUs, and they are doing
this job really good. If you post something (deletion request,
orphaning request etc.) to this mailing list it's usually done within a
few minutes.
