No.  There's alot more to it than what the AM does, as is obvious when
you look at the AM templates and then consider what people tend to get
rejected by the DAM for.  The AMs do a pretty good job and handle alot
of the 'easier' questions for the AM report but the DAM has to look at
more than just the report for each applicant.
