Is it a GNU requirement?  Or perhaps it is an autoconf one.  Or  
perhaps became popular because of Linux distributions have one.

I find no requirement in the GNU standard.  So as I see it  
MAINTAINERS.txt could be instructions for future maintainers of the  
project.  Something that gives direction to future contributors.  Or  
it could be a list of assigned people who have responsibilities in  
some area of Drupal project management.
