The main difference is the automation of the process. MIA, which
currently is 1 person, requires manual activity and efforts. If we
agree that automatically, if you stop exercising your DD rights, you
go away after 2 years, the energy which we currently spend in MIA [1]
can be better spend in doing other QA activities.

I really don't see the benefit in the added MIA layer. You stop
working for Debian for a long period: you go away; the day you'll
re-gain interest: you can come back.


[1] which is not only man power, it's also a technical infrastructure
    behind the MIA tools, which also have privacy implications, etc
