I think that debian's current setup of some of the suggested
services are partly documented in places only DDs can access.

In other emails, Panu Kalliokoski pointed out that there is a
bottleneck in the number DDs willing to help him get trusted and
it does require DDs to help welcome new maintainers. That's a
fair comment, IMO.
The hard-to-identify delays in the application process are a
frequent complaint I hear too. Debian really does throw nails
in the path of potential contributors sometimes. Are we looking
for the technical skills or masochism?
