This isn't really a bug, is it?

We have no formatting requirements for the MAINTAINERS file and the
section owner is free to align with tabs, spaces or nothing as they see
fit. Most use a single tab, but a couple don't. The only real thing
that cares is and it uses \s* as the parse regexp,
so it doesn't care either.

Now, we could possibly agree the file looks better with a single space
or a single tab between the tag and the value and thus we should be
doing this, but we'd need to agree on that and update the tag
description accordingly.
