Agreed -- there are many other valuable ways to contribute to the 
Drupal community besides becoming a module maintainer on drupal.org, 
and most one-off custom modules do not merit a release on drupal.org.

Instead, how about doing one or more of the following:
   - Submit issues when you find bugs in Drupal or modules, or have 
ideas for improving them.
   - Review and/or create patches for issues others have contributed.
   - Write or edit documentation.
   - Support other users on the forums or IRC.
   - Become active in your local Drupal user group.
   - Other suggestions: http://drupal.org/contribute
