Of course. There are many in OSMF who would actually like to implement 
this the other way round - anyone who is an active contributor is 
automatically an OSMF member. But this is not possible, legally, because 
being an OSMF member also carries an (albeit small) amount of 
responsibilities which we cannot shift onto someone just because they 
make a few edits.
