That's not a reason to remove the port.

aja@, jca@ and danj@ wanted to remove the port long time ago but I took
the maintainership to keep hiawatha available as a package.

This is the important part of the article:

"For the time being, this website will remain online, but I will make
the forum read-only. The contact form will be removed, I won't send any
more newsletters (I will remove all e-mail addresses soon) and I will no
long be available for questions about the Hiawatha webserver."

He obviously just want to maintain the project as someting only for him
and doesn't want to receive any kind of contact about the project. The
package is a server exposed to the wild, so I don't see the point to
maintain a package without upstream.

Agreed, feels to me like a note in DESCR might be appropriate,
but it's a pretty unique little webserver and I don't see anything
yet that's a good reason not to have it in ports. It's not even
"unmaintained" upstream.

Drop MAINTAINER if you like, of course ..

On the other hand:

"To be clear: I won't stop developing Hiawatha. But new features will be based on
what I need, not on what is needed for a webserver in general."

How refreshing.

Someone figured out they aren't a slave and wants to test their ability
to do a new thing

(Talking in general, not in the specific, I of course only really like
software written to privsep designs)

Why?

Do you intend to add that to all the ports?

90% of them are in the same condition.
