In addition to the practical issues that Raphael raises a number of
people have expressed a desire to maintian packages (and otherwise be
involved in the technical side of Debian) without having any involvement
in the political side of Debian.  It's true that people can always just
ignore these things but some people feel a sense of obligation to take
part in them and are more comfortable with a status that explicitly
excludes doing that.
