Certainly. I though Stephen was saying that one could collect such
data without the bias towards controversial cases that mailing-list
reading would entail. Just reading about the controversial rejections
wouldn't strike me as a good way to get insight into the *process*.

Or is your point perhaps that there are no non-controversial
rejections at the DAM stage?

In the "standard" case the DAM would not have much data to go by here,
would he? If the DAM is supposed to search for mailing-list activity
from the applicant and read it all to find out whether he is a nice
guy or not, I can certainly understand the calls for spreading out the
workload among more people.

Which is as it should be.
