Not to me, nor do I think this should be a criterion to reject a RFR. 

But unmaintained/discontinued packages in general tend to suffer from
bit-rot, raise questions on a package's long-term safety and their
general usability.

So, if this package has a sufficiently large user base (e.g. in Debian)
and if its FE-maintainers (i.e. primarily YOU) think they can handle it,
I don't consider adding a package with discontinued development in FE as
a problem.
