I think the suggestion is that on the entry form (newnm.php), you
could ask the applicant, probably before their name and email address:

 Have you read the Social Contract and DFSG and agree to abide by them
 in your Debian-related work? (You can read them <a>here</a>.) [Yes/No]

 Do you yet have a GPG key signed by a current developer or some
 other photo ID scanned in and signed with your GPG key? (Click
 <a>here</a> for more information on this.) [Yes/No]

 What do you intend to do for Debian? [textbox]

 If you intend to package software, do you have a Debian package you
 have adopted or created ready to show your AM?  And if you intend to
 do other things, do you have experience in those things which you can
 tell your AM about?  (You may want to get sponsorship to achieve this
 goal.  Click <a>here</a> for more information on the sponsorship
 system.) [Yes/No]

 Have you read the relevant documentation described <a>here</a>? [Yes/No]

 PLEASE NOTE: if you are unable to answer Yes to all of the questions
 asked, you are not yet ready to apply to the New Maintainer process.
 If you answer "yes" anyway, your AM may choose to send you back to
 the sponsorship system or to put your application on hold for three (?)
 months until you are ready.
