You cannot maintain 'just for bo' for the simple reason that bo is frozen.
Ie, no new uploads unless they are security fixes or some such.

You could however do all your work on your bo system, and then do the final
compilations etc on a hamm system such as va.debian.org to which you'll have
access once you're a maintainer.
That being said, it's better to be on because it helps the rest of us to test
/ develop / improve hamm. hamm is actually super stable already. So please
