Ehm? Which things except dealing bugs, upstream stuff etc. has a maintainer
or have the co-maintainers to handle a non-maintainer could do? And which
reason do you see not to let changes always go over the desk of maintainer
or co-maintainers (which is simply disallowing provenpackager)?

Four eyes see more than two. AFAIK the kernel people are reviewing all of
their changes and approve them various times before commiting them. Doing
this or similar things seems to be a quality enhancement to me (which comes
back to my original issue).
