Maybe we should amend PEP 11 to say that whomever volunteers to maintain a platform must make sure that platform's buildbot is not red for longer than a

True. I guess as long as we are upfront that the platform's buildbot is known to be failing and the clock has started (so we all know to ignore the failure), then I'm fine with 3 months.
It's also the case of that being the time period to ping python-committers with a notification to say "Hey, my availability is likely to be intermittent for a while, so the buildbot for <platform> may be unreliable until <future date>".
That way, other folks that care about the platform may be more alert to resolving platform specific issues during that time (and may even be able to take over the lead platform support role).
