What do you think a maintainer has orphaned a package or a package was
orphaned by a TU? Maybe the maintainer isn't interested in maintaining
it anymore? So why would you give those packages automatically back to
those previous maintainers who are not interested in them? They most
likely would feel annoyed by that and will orphan them again.

If you are interested in maintaining an orphaned package, feel free to
adopt and maintain it yourself.

Sorry, but really pointless idea.
