Surely the solution is to promote more people who do those things, not
to turn away people making other contributions? We need more
contributors of all kinds.

It is not necessary to be a core developer for been a productive contributor. You only need to be a core developer for doing a work that can be made only by a core developer. This is mainly merging your own and others PRs after a thorough reviewing.
