If unmaintained, then why not let someone who actually uses the package
maintain it?

Its not like the packages are gone forever. The exact same PKGBUILDs are
now on the AUR, so you can still use the packages. Or update them if
you're interested. The only 'loss' is to those who don't have a package
installed, they'd now have to install something from the AUR. Big deal.
