Because the DAM hadn't had a chance to evaluate their application yet?

No, I don't think this is acceptable and I'm working on getting this
changed.  At the same time, please don't accept miracles/panaceas
tomorrow for a problem which is much more complex than probably all
involved in this discussion might think (for a hint see the note

The DAM has the exclusive power to create and remove accounts.  It is
up to them to make a decision who should receive and keep accounts.

I'd have to guess, but perhaps a reason is that he doesn't perceive
the discussion as helpful.  (Note that for example that while adding
DAMs has been suggested nobody has yet posted a list of prospective
and capable candidates.)

In any case, applications will be processed (and some rejected, I'd
assume) once db.d.o is up again.
