I think the measurement is :

1. what will it cost if you have to rewrite the authors code and all
derived works.
2. what if you just remove the code

That doesn't work for contributions other than code, e.g.:
- artists
- Usability testers
- Template creators
- Wiki janitors and maintainers
- Server admins for LO
- translator
- bug wrangler
- people manning LO conference booths

There are just too many ways to contribute besides "lines of
code". E.g. OpenEmbedded requires three existing members to "+1" a
membership request in order to accept it, which is a much softer and
subjective criteria. To prevent hijacking one could combine this with a
veto possibility by the majority of the SC or something if one would
like that.
