status:maintenance-mode is (as it says on the tin) a subjective
indicator that a team has entered a transient period of reduced
activity. By contrast, a low-activity tag (maybe it should be
something more innocuous like low-churn?) would be an objective
indicator that attempts to make contributor diversity assertions are
doomed to fail the statistical significance test. We could consider
overloading status:maintenance-mode for this purpose, but some teams
perhaps simply don't have large amounts of code change ever and
that's just a normal effect of how they operate.
