I'd rather see ways to commit to commit to certain packages and kinds
of maintenance.  For instance, "I will provide security support for
etch and lenny for exim4".

This would be some form of self-assessment, and we could
cross-correlate open bug reports with the self-assessment to check if
it is realistic.
