  Yes, you are all so right.

  It must have been idiots without brains who thought up the MAINTAINERS
file and its structure. It must be coincidence it was placed in the
sources themselves where people normally look at when editing files.
The way it is structured makes it easy to quickly find a person which
knows/cares about the part of interest, be it codecs or platforms or
something else. This must have some really obscure reasons.

Sorry for the sarcasm,
