No comment on that part?

Indeed, but I think that it should also be stated in the proposal. I propose
something along (for the first point in Outline):
When Fedora Extras member sees that a maintainer isn't answering serious
bugs, in particular when there is a fix provided, and for the bugs related
to security, major usability issues (crashs), request for rebuild against
newer libs, and that the maintainer is not answering rebuild requests,
emails or the like, they need to file a bug against the package in bugzilla
asking for the maintainer to respond.
