If an AM is doing nothing more than using the NM templates and
processing the applicant's answers, then that AM is not doing a good
job.  An AM should do a thorough background check of the applicant,
including mailing list activity, BTS usage (both bug response time and
resolve time), package upload frequency, and relationships with
developers (particularly sponsors).

There's no reason any of these checks should be the DAM's
responsibility.  And people wonder why the NM queue tends to be
processed so slowly...

Don't worry, it's *in*-flammable.
