It may be eventually if it works out.  It doesn't need to be to begin
with.  The work certainly does not require the result being an official
part of Debian.  You seem to fail to understand that.

You don't need to be part of Debian to do the work and to make it
available.

You took the comment out of context and then replied to it as that.  The
comment was that you could have created the repository, which is all
that being a DD would do for you (the Debian repository is already
created).  The work of providing reliable security updates for testing 
would not have been done just because you were made a DD.
