That's overkill. The reason that new-maintainer has such a reasonable
complex structure is that it's a lot of work and we needed a way to
divide that over people, and it's a lot of responsibilaty that needs
to be handled properly.
Policy maintenance is nowhere near as high-demanding as new-maintainer.
What policy needs is someone who is willing to take a more active role
in the process and actively work on policies, while still using the
BTS-based system to keep everyone involved.

It's not, debian-announce, debian-news and debian-security-announce are
the only moderated lists we have.
