I expect the port-removal to be initiated/done in an orderly fashion. This 
includes marking it FORBIDDEN (or IGNORE, or BROKEN):

 FORBIDDEN= Violates licensing requirements of the author


 EXPIRATION_DATE=<<Some date a few months from now>>

This would give those people, whom you expect to submit patches, some time to, 
actually, create them... Only if nothing materializes by the expiration date, 
should the port be deleted.
