HI, I think mentoring is not that important in this situation. because interested contributors can join as an ambassador and get to know the procedure and then they can apply for the membership.
BTW if there is a help needed to newly joined ambassadors they can raise it in the IRC or mailing list. Then they are able to get more solutions for the matter without being centric to one person as in mentoring.
So i think this procedure is an extra burden and there are many things to be done rather than mentoring. First I think it would be useful but now I feel its not that important. One or two people can handle adding ambassadors to the list. Answer to the questing can be posted to the mailing list. And if there is any help please post it to the list and IRC. That ll work well.
I agree with Jan and Buddhikke too
