I've got to bet this is going to cause more issues than it solves. 
SCSI uses scsi: <driver>: for drivers but not every driver has a
MAINTAINERS entry.  We use either scsi: or scsi: core: for mid layer
things, but we're not consistent.  Block uses blk-<something>: for all
of it's stuff but almost no <somtehing>s have a MAINTAINERS entry.  So
the next thing you're going to cause is an explosion of suggested
MAINTAINERs entries.

Has anyone actually complained about treewide:?
