I really don't think this is a good idea. In general most of the delays
are not on the part of the AM. I would like to see that area be reformed
and I agree with the people who would think it should be a check, not
teaching. Referrals from other DDs, experience as a DM, evidence of good
contribution to debian; all of these things can be used to judge a
candidate's suitability, but I would see this as an opportunity to
increase our quality control in reform, not decrease it.

Maybe it would be a good time to return to the discussion I tried to
start a while ago [0]?
