Don't agree with that, all depends on the subject being writen about:

For instance if the subject is debian-installer, than it's those working on 
that who have more weight. If on the other and the subject is translation 
than it's translators whose word carries most weight. Idem for any other 

I don't think this is a problem anyway, it's common to say 'I'm not involved 
with that, talk to $person/$list instead' when asked about something you're 
not involved in. The person being asked being a packager/translator/doc 
writer/artist/... has no bearing on that, and in reverse if they're being 
asked about their area of involvement their word should carry more weight.
