Could you clarify the difference? Sorry, but I'm forgetting what should perhaps be obvious.

I think the only point was what math/R/Makefile.extension should do.
I don't recall any R packages setting OWNER to anything; most set MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users%NetBSD.org@localhost.
Perhaps math/R/Makefile.extension should just set MAINTAINER to that if it is undefined. This would mean that most R packages would not need to set MAINTAINER at all. Or, is that a bad idea because it does not make maintainership obvious?
