Should Recode be dropped and why?

Recode is being dropped simply because it currently has no maintainer,
for a package to be in openSUSE someone has to commit to maintain it.
Whoever was doing this in the past doesn't want to anymore, so either
someone else steps in to maintain it or it gets dropped.

OK. So if I take the maintainership will nothing be dropped? Is any real problem about recode?
