The idea for contributor.d.o includes either to reserve all existing
debian.org UIDs within the @contributor.d.o namespace or activate them
as forwarding or giving people the choice to activate or whatever.

Well, different weight. To be able to clearly seperate (using the terms
of my much-discussed text) "is a DC/DM" and "is a DME/DD". Basically
the look to the outside (press, users, etc), if a DC/DM writes something
it is less binding to the project than if a DME/DD writes something.
