I agree on the low-risk for the project, but a DD not interested in
Debian "politics" has no need to be a DD. If it's just a matter of
technical work then sponsorship would be enough.  I consider Debian
"politics" as a relevant part of my being a DD and I personally feel it
as a duty to be informed on it, nothing different that being a citizen
of my country after all (no, you're right, Italian politics has been
much worst than Debian's in the past years :-)

Note that with being informed of course I don't mean following
thoroughly a significant amount of mailing list, but the bare minimum of
-vote archives just before voting is not requiring that much.
