It is true that it is not the typical non responsive policy, but I think
that it is covered nevertheless, with a bit of interpretation. If you 
remove the reference to the bug which doesn't make sense, indeed one
gets:

 Others can add to the bug that they also were not
 successful in contacting the maintainer, or providing additional contact
 information for the maintainer (ie, alternative email, irc, etc).

I don't think it makes much sense.

I'll try to make a proposal soon to cover that in the Non-responsive 
Maintainer Policy.
