While that might be true (you did work on those packages for many years
already), I do not think it's appropriate for you to become DD just yet.
IMHO you haven't touched nearly enough packages to have an throughout
understanding of enough niches of Debian packaging, and (from what I see
after randomly opening a bug report of a package you maintain) you also
don't know how to deal with BTS control commands.

If anything, you might probably apply for DM so that you don't need a
sponsor for your own packages, rather than DD.
