While I think we should show hits, peer review status, version, author
(...) we mustn't declare a document unmaintained unless the author
decides it is.

OTOH, if the document had not been updated for a long time, if the
license allowed it and if a 3rd party want to maintain it, if the
original author didn't upgrade it, I think we should change the
maintainer status.
