I still feel that if maintainer is willing to keep TODO list on web for
whatever reason (hyperlinks, nice tables, images, whatever), then he
should be free to do so.

The U: (or whatever) tag in MAINTAINERS file still could point to file in
the actual sources, in cases maintainer choses to have the list there, of
course.
