I'm sorry to clarify myself. I gratefully respect time spent by any DD
working on the project and tenfold time of any AM interfacing with NM --
NMs (like me probably :-)) can be "pain in the butt" to deal with.

I was talking about X>=12 and Y>=5 which wouldn't name any
such developer as *new* under my classification.  My idea is just to
delegate AM duties to the DDs mature enough and able/willing to help.

Then all of the AMs who has the ability to perform AM duties and who are
for some probably truly respectful reason are having 0 NM assigned with
more than 50 NMs in the queue wouldn't look a bit awkward.
