I update a (a leaf one, but Contrib is intended for leaf packages only)

Contrib after opening the Factory.

You can update packages in Factory all day long (minus temporary
freeze before branching a new product). Maintenance is an issue only
if a package gets included in a product. Having a package on a
products means greater responsibility of course. Those
responsibilities are a result of user expectations on openSUSE. They
need to be discussed separately from the technical requirements for
a Factory checkin. There's no excuse for avoiding Factory just to
bypass openSUSE packaging policy IMO.
