We promise "no-regressions" for code in main repository, no such
promise for staging. We have quite a lot of code without maintainer.

Moving code to staging means it will get broken -- staging was not
designed for this. I believe moving anything there is bad idea.

Staging is for ugly code, not for code that needs new maintainter.
