It seems to me that this would add another place for people to direct
their questions, without addressing the problem of finding the right
contact point to begin with.

In other words: What's to stop ‘contacts.debian.org’ from becoming yet
another item that comes up in search results, maybe discovered and maybe
not? How will that become the one obvious place for people to ask?
