Thats a poor analogy.  Provenpackagers are not responsible for your
packages. You are responsible as a package maintainer for bugs against
the package.  If you don't want to deal with it, give up the package or
find a co-maintainer who will deal with such issues.  When you work
within a community, it is a project wide decision.  Not just personal
preference on which bugs you can reasonably ignore.
