Hope I am not biting my ass now, but I believed this was suggested but
the counter-argument were; is really a file/system made to configure the
kernel related to the maintainer?

I like the idea of ".maintainers" (or maybe even ".maintainer" now). It
has also been suggested that the file should be at the lowest common
pathway to avoid duplication. Downside is the added need to search for
the file...
