[aur-general] community/python2-flask conflicts python-flask

I was in the process of creating a python3 package [1] for flask, but
I've noticed python2-flask [2] seems to conflicts+replace
"python-flask". I imagine this was for historical reasons, but this
introduces probably unintentional behavior when a package provides
python-flask (the python3 version of flask):

    :: python-flask-git and python2-flask are in conflict (python-flask). Remove python2-flask? [y/N]

Would it be appropriate to (directly) contact said TU about his package,
or is it innappropriate to expect TUs to yield to AUR
