Because it's the standard procedure and, beside this, it's unfair to 
disown a package without trying to contact its maintainer first.

Maybe the maintainer itself may disown the package as soon you'll get in 
touch with him, so there's no need for a TU to disown it.
Maybe the the maintainer will provide the update.
Or maybe there will be silence for two weeks and a TU will disown the 

In any case, IMHO this is a fair procedure to get a package disowned and 
is good to stick with it.
