Why not make Debian Developer a title of honour, given out by invitation only. 
5 DDs together can propose someone to be invited, whereupon the 50 DDs strong 
Debian Parliament will discuss the proposal and decide if the new DD is 
invited in. The DDPL, Overfiend and James Troup of course have the right to 
veto such descisions or fast-track some candidates.
