Let's say he would take the role of patching stuff in Stable, there
would still be double work for the release team and security team for at
- Checking the packages before upload of security fixes (that's security
team work), or upload of bugfixes to proposed-updates (that's the
release team)
- Making security announces

There's nothing Michael could do to reduce that work. However, as stated
before, uploading to Sid or Experimental could be done (if the SONAME
clash gets fixed), and I don't think anyone would oppose for more
contribution in Debian, especially with correct security support!
