That requires LP to know who is or isn't a DD.  Currently it has no such
knowledge, and I think it would require a fair amount of discussion to
decide how best to get such information, with a none-too-elegant outcome
(special-casing Debian out of all the projects in the world that Launchpad
seeks to interface with), which is why I didn't suggest this.

That doesn't mean that the Launchpad developers won't implement it; perhaps
the bug Scott filed will bear fruit.  But I think it's worth considering
other solutions in the meantime.
