I really like the idea. Sounds like a great approach to motivate people
for writing test cases.

I would not be afraid of this. We need more test cases right know, so we
should be opened for any of test cases. We just need someone (more
people) that would watch the situation, move the test cases into the
right categories by priority, fix/reject confusing or strange test cases
and teach others.

I suggest to do something like with the developer mailing list. New
contributors might send test cases to this mailing list. Yi Fan or other
experienced QA people will review them and put into Litmus. If a
contributor is good, she might get write access and help with reviewing
test cases from others.
