I don't see this presenting a huge burden on the actual users, since mailers like Thunderbird let you specify different outgoing SMTP servers depending upon the "From:" identity you're using.

I don't see it presenting a huge burden on the servers, since mail from individual Debian maintainers/admins surely pales in comparison to the traffic on the mailing lists (that the servers are already handling)

I don't see it presenting a huge burden on the server administrators, since they can automate the process of adding/removing SMTP accounts as much as they've automated other tasks when someone becomes a maintainer (or otherwise gets a debian.org identity).
