As someone who wasd recently the target of one of those expulsion processes, i
believe that what you propose is not enough.

The only real way to handle this, is to modify the expulsion process, and to
start the process not with a public or private lynching process, but with a
first step consisting of asking the DPL, or someone delegated by him, to do a
private mediation process, and only if this step fails, should more advanced
steps be taken.

An expulsion process is the most hateful thing that can be done to a debian
developer, and the current process let it open to any trigger happy developer
who happens to dislike another one or whatever.
