No, interested developers can subscribe to the mailing list or whatever
they need to do to partecipate.
It's not that I don't like the idea of cooperation in defining things
like sonames or some programs having an upstream maintainer instead of
being independently patched to death by each distribution (especially
for mature or orphaned packages like ppp, tcp-wrappers, netkit, etc...),
but I'm can't see any benefit in blindly commiting to some standard, as
it may mean lowering the quality of Debian.

Christoph Hellwig already explained the obvious problem with this.
