Sorry, but IMHO this isn't right.

A sponsor needs to verify his candidate.
I could share with you my past: 3-4 months of Archlinux security,
personal repo with compiz and xgl, with the help ( when I need it for
some PKGBUILD ) of voidnull and molok. Then, my application: all TUs
know me for my works, and not for my words.

If we starts ( as it is already done ) to sponsor everyone only for
increase the number of TUs, we're wrong. Absolutely wrong. And we will
see TUs that appear and disappear in one week, many orphaned packages
in community, etc.

Finally, do what you want, I have one vote, I will use it.
