On the other hand, volatile.debian.org should have a team that acts
similarly to the security team, watching that strict criteria are met by
possible uploads. Therefore it might still be a good idea to ask the
security team

- whether they volunteer to take over that task, or

- whether they are willing to offer a new "volatile" team some "training
  on the job" help.
