Following the "Package foo needs new maintainer" resp. "Drop request for package foo" mails on opensuse-packaging for a while. Community members already asked for more details when a package is dropped from Factory.
So what about creating an "openSUSE:Dropped" project, where people can find the latest source of a dropped package - and at least can get an overview about currently dropped packages?
FWIW, for the GNOME team, I try to keep dropped packages available in projects like home:vuntz:Attic_11.0, home:vuntz:Attic_11.1, etc. Build is disabled there but at least it makes it easy for someone to take the package back if he wants.
So I think your idea makes at least some sense :-)
