If somebody genuinely offered to take over, say, rmail, and maintain it
separately, and handle bug reports, and, like, be the maintainer, that
would be a help.  Great, go ahead, and put the resulting thing in ELPA.

But nobody has made that offer?  Or have they, and I just missed it?

I fail to see how just shuffling rmail from Emacs to ELPA helps us in
any way with the maintainership.  Instead it creates an extra burden on
us, since we (in addition to all the normal maintainership) will also
have to consider Emacs version compatibility.
