Maybe have a staff then? 6-10 users that are say have a moderator status (Can't think of a better explaination) and have an FTP account and a spare limited admin account somewhere to watch over drupal. It can be done. A huge success story is a site i am a part of, Acctrade.org. As a community we've done that without FTP access for about 2 years, and until last month hadn't called our actual admins. 

An ideal setup is two main admins 3 Super moderaters (like status wise) and 4 moderators (drupal wiki and IRC)

MAdmin MAdmin

Smod Smod Smod

Mod Mod Mod Mod

That way if one has to go away, someone can move up the ladder. It can be worked, as long as propper measures are taken into effect. :)
