the only questionable part about the whole NM process for translators as 
opposed to package maintainers would be the tasks and skills portion asking 
for deep packaging knowledge and related things such as compiling.

I have absolutely no problem with requiring that people who get to vote in 
Debian first have to go to a process that examines whether they accept and 
understand general Debian philosophy and goals.

That's the same for non-DD package maintainers, they don't get to vote 
either, unless they go through NM
