Yeah, I think it should be possible too, but it will likely be much
harder for sponsors to tell if someone is ready to be sponsored.

Sure. I guess it's currently subjectively up to sponsors to determine
if someone is ready to be sponsored and maintain packages. Without
concrete information it's impossible to tell if someone knows enough
to be a good maintainer. :(

One thing that might have helped in the dim past was when people did
introductions explaining their background and skills...
