What you're proposing, then, is that we institute mentor licenses with
requirements over and above those for ASF membership. In effect, you'd
create an additional level of earned merit for mentors ... which is
probably a good thing.

What I don't understand is this: where's the motivation for anyone to
submit to this additional burden? There's a lot of stick in your
proposal, but a woeful lack of carrot ... so, most likely not going to
work for a bunch of volunteers.
