Does it really? as pointed out earlier in threads about this we have 900+ 
non-DD maintainers. so it seems to me that this "class of Debian 
participant" already exists. All the proposal does in that respect is make 
the existing relation official.

It empowers a group of current contributors to do their contribution in a 
more efficient manner. By doing so it also free's up time of other 
contributors playing middleman for the first group. How is this in any way 
a bad thing?
