using your distinctions between Maintainer and Developer:

evil Maintainers (people who can upload) are dangerous to all users of Debian
because they can upload malicious packages and those packages, when installed
by a user, could cause harm the user's box

evil Developers (people with accounts on Debian boxen and/or CVS access to the
Debian utilities (apt, etc.)) are dangerous to Debian because they can damage
the boxen or the utilities

of the two, the greater concern are evil Maintainers, imo; users trust Debian
packages to not harm their boxen
