Yes, this puzzles me too, but on the other hand, Debian became a CNA,
and Debian's official policy is geared away from "responsible
disclosure" -- all bug reports are supposed to be public.

Debian isn't a CNA; as far as I know, it isn't possible for
organizations to become CNAs.

<http://cve.mitre.org/cve/cna.html#cnas> lists organizations, not
individuals.  The requirements are clearly geared towards
organizations, too.

Unless things have changed since I went through the process, the authority
involved does not extend to Debian in general but only to specific
