Debian isn't being asked to do any such thing. I've been thinking
about doing this for a long time, one of the points in the proposal
I'd written was that DDs would be discouraged from participating since
they should be working on supporting the official archive.

experimental relies on DDs to upload, ftpmasters would probably reject
packages with no Maintainer field (or a blank one). experimental is
not the right place for this.
