Well, the TU could have waited, I give you that.

This is how I ended up maintaining quite a few packages. But I didn't
waited for them to become orphan, in most cases.

Now this is were I fail to see the point. If you still wanted/needed the
package, why orphan it? I'm perfectly happy with the way AUR works
today. But, if you guys really want orphaned packages to stay around for
some time, I suggest you guys implement it and send a diff. Perhaps
something that prevents even a TU from deleting (hiding) a orphaned
package that isn't orphan long enough, lets say, a couple of months.
