I'm not sure what problem you are trying to tackle.
The way I see it, there are a few types of "slacker" status.
There are those who are just plain busy, and can't respond in a timely
manner due to real-life issues. Then there are a group who just don't
have time for Gentoo as a regular maintenance task anymore, but still
participate in discussions, development, etc. Then there's the last
group who are completely unresponsive and inactive -- these are the ones
that are real blockers.
I don't like the idea of pretending there's no such thing as slacking,
because there is.
We do have a practical problem (though I don't know how serious it is).
We have healthy roll calls in some herds, but the developers are in a
certain range of active to unresponsive. When the herd is filled up,
this gives developers and users the impression that it *should* be well
tendered, but that may not be the case.
