If that information is valuable, how about adding that into the kernel
documentation page?

If linux-mips.org wiki is back, we will keep this link; if not, we
should get a copy of that information into the documentation (where it
can survive some time) or we simply drop it.

Putting a web.archive.org link into MAINTAINERS sounds like a really
bad idea to me.
