I think the bottom line is:

Are the Hurd developers interested in any new Mach design
changes/feature additions?  Neal and Marcus don't seem to (concentrating
on Hurd/L4 instead), so this leaves Thomas and Roland apparently.

Sergio proposed/asked some of those:

"Multipage requests for GNU Mach 1,3"

"New behaviour for reading from a memory object."

and did not get feedback from either of you.

This is not a bad thing per se if you guys don't feel like working on
Mach anymore, but it would probably be good to communicate this clearly
to people either way, as some still seem to be interested in hacking on

What should happen to patches pertaining to other parts than Mach itself
(the Hurd, glibc) due to these design changes is another matter.
