Why do you feel it would be helpful? I don't think there has been any
evidence that patch approvals for sim/common has been a bottleneck or
indeed even a problem for anyone to date.

I'm happy enough with that idea, provided that there is a mechanism
for people to be listed explicitly as sim maintainers, overriding the
corresponding GDB maintainer for that port. There are potential sim
maintainers who are capable of working on the sim but might not be
willing/able to work on GDB as well.
