Ugh, what a terrible idea.  DMs are by definition uploaders who have *not*
yet demonstrated, to the satisfaction of the project, their capability to do
unsupervised uploads of arbitrary packages.  Why are you so eager to gut our
QA processes?

DMs should request sponsorship of QA uploads on debian-qa just like anybody
else.  If they consistently demonstrate their competence in this fashion,
they should be recognized for this by making them full DDs - not by
conferring additional rights on DMs that the DM admissions criteria aren't
set up for!
