There has been no public response to this, and Jussi has indicated in
the referenced bugzilla that at least one former lam board member is
advocating for the package's removal.  The current plan is to block lam
from rawhide.  If someone decides later that they wish to take over
ownership of lam, then we can always unblock it.  However, this does
mean that the few lam using packages out there will need to be rebuilt
to remove their lam subpackages and dependency.
