Yes, it have maintainers(and appropriate ones too, according to my opinion). I 
don't take Aaron's comments on KUA seriously, so in that way is his 
statements not relevant(how should they be taken seriously); I'm just tired 
of the friction and his attitude of that he's the middle of the world. But 
right, it would be great to hear some actual discussion about KUA, from the 
maintainers of the HIG for example.
