The account creation and adding your key to the debian keyring is a
very serious step as it opens all kinds of doors for you. It is
tightly controled who can update it at all and even more tightly who
should/will update it.

Namely that is just James who will do it. Yes it is a horribly tight
bottleneck. Just be happy. until very recently James had to approve
you too and that took even longer.

Nothing you can do. People have tried and it mostly had the reverse
effect. Keep doing what you do for Debian and live with having to need
a sponsor.
