OK, but you've again ignored the substantive points in my reply in favour of this specific issue.

To be clear:

I mentioned in passing that GSoC doesn't even seem to cover packaging, but it absolutely definitely does not cover a large proportion of Debian activities. For example, documentation would be a perfectly valid activity for a Debian internship, as would be, for example, any coordination activity. I also mentioned previously that in some cases they could be used to let people learn from "shadowing" activity, whereas the GSoC model is about the student working on a project and presenting the code at the end.

And GSoC absolutely definitely only covers a rather narrow segment of the population.

I am not trying to criticise GSoC or say it's flawed, just to explain why we might indeed want something more than only GSoC.
