Clearly not.

It's argueably the most important right that is reserved for developers
but it does not necessary stand to reason that it should be reserved
only for those who engage in development.

I'd like to see those who have made long-term, sustained, and
significant contributions to Debian enfranchised. That could mean
broadening the category of developer through changes to NM or it could
also mean another enfranchised category of contributor. That's what I
read as the argument at the core of this thread -- but perhaps I was
just projecting.
