Certainly not!  Yeek!  Thanks for the question, I didn't see that
interpretation.

The purpose of the job description is to make it easier for people who
maintain packages to get at least some of the work "guaranteed" by their
employer.  Obviously it is not a guarantee or a contract to support the
package.  This is where the wording matters.  It is just about extending
the personal responsibility to the organization.  For example, an
individual can orphan a package for any reason, and their responsibility
is just to announce the orphaning.  The same should hold true for an
organization.

I'll make some changes in the page[1] for that.
