Talking to you with the hat of an ownCloud core developer on my head:
We will release OC5 in 2-3 weeks which will lead to 3 stable version to be maintained:
4.0.x, 4.5.x and 5.0.x which is a tough job. I would not be surprised if 4.0.x will be 
dropped within 2013 and then maintenance will be a pure nightmare.

Talking to you with the hat of an almost inactive package maintainer:
Sorry for the inactivity - sometimes it's simply too much!
Any other debain devs and maintainers are welcome to join our team and keep the package alive!
Paul and myself spend many nighty in April 2012 to get ownCloud into Wheezy before the freeze.
It really would be sad to see it being dropped! :-(

Take care,
