Obviously the question whether a DM, who is allowed to upload packages
on behalf of pkg-haskell-maintainers@l.a.d.o, is allowed to upload
package X would depend on the maintainer field of the packages already
in Debian, not the one in the package he uploads. Just the way it is at
the moment with DMUA: A DM cannot just NMU an arbitrary package just by
setting the flag in the new package.

But thanks for asking, just in case this was not clear to others.
