I suppose it's pacific that either:
- whoever steps in will try to get in touch with the original
maintainer asking if he's still interested;
- the original maintainer will get aware of the renew and will ask to
keep maintaining the interested stuff.

that should cover the cases you name as the maintainer will explain
that the version we have in the repository is the intended latest (and
he will keep his maintainership).
