I will not be attending debconf10, but here are my pointers:

* the easy part: there is nothing wrong for non-DD to ask in advance if there 
are interested sponsor(s) of the piece of software they intend to package or 
adopt, especially with large and complex pieces. That would avoid wasting 
their time.

* the hard part: DD-body should define a clear priority list of what they are 
most interested in (in no particular order):
+ fixing bugs (especially RC) in existing packages
+ co-maintaining new or existing packages, so that non-DD gather experience 
and DD are able to track their progress and eventually trust.
+ advocating new candidates when ready so that they share the sponsorship load

(the hardest part: I'm not sure whether this is best to be implemented as a 
static common source of pointers or dynamically instantiated on per DD or 
packaging team basis)
