Nobody said anything about needing an unlimited amount of collaborators.

However, it is required that we check every single file we upload to the Debian
archives, so this task has to be done in some form or another. If you feel like
your current packages are too much effort, maybe you should look for
collaborators on them to ease the ask.

If we cannot do this simple thing, maybe we shouldn't be distributing software.
