True, but it might decrease the demand for new maintainership.
Hypothetically there may be people in the queue who are more
interested in a cool email address than in helping Debian.
Regarding working for Debian before being a registered maintainer.
I agree with Marcus that this does deprive the maintainer of
rights, which is not nice. However, if we accept that new maintainer
processing must take a non-zero amount of time, people in the queue
could be doing some work in that time. There is no need to just
sit and wait.
