Because the default is
"tell me more about the maintainers of a particular file".
which can include not just the default maintainers of
a particular file within a subsystem, but the also info
about the people that actually apply patches to files.

For instance, a patch made to a file often has a nominal
maintainer that doesn't actually apply the patches but
that maintainer may review or approve but not actually
be the upstream path for acceptance of the patch.
