This doesn't make sense. As the header states:

     "This file is intended to help patch contributors route their changes
      to the right people."

So you're either volunteering to maintain something (and then you should
be listed here, so that people can contact you) or you don't (and then one
should be removed from it). The AUTHORS file is there to keep track of the
authors, in addition to the header of source files.

Best regards, Arjen
