Let me rephrase it. Disowning a package isn't the mechanism for allowing
others to maintain a package, if you still need/use/care for it.
Co-maintainer functionality is for that. There were people on the old
AUR that would disown a package so that someone else could update it,
and then disown it again, and so on. This should end.

If someone adopt it. When they are in orphaned status, they can't. But,
then again, if someone adopt it, then it wouldn't be deleted, and we
wouldn't be having this discussion.
