So, you're saying that the NM process is redundant. I could get DD
status by simply contributing enough until enough people like my stuff
and get tired of constant uploads - why should I try to go through the
NM process at all?

An NM can do little more if he sees a problem in the Debian way of
doing things.

I'm actually starting to reconsider my NM application in light of this
discussion. Currently I'm maintaining two low-importance packages and
skimming the orphaned-list every now and then for possible additions.
It seems to me that I belong to the class of people Debian Project
expects to contribute via bug reports and patches, not as a DD. At
least the DAM would have one application less to consider...
