Mark is a long-term DD.  We know he's going to do a good-faith job of
looking after software he uses.  What is the problem?

I am glad that we're moving away from, "every package is a maintainer's
private fiefdom".  But the converse of that is not, "let me nitpick
every maintainer decision to death".  If you're not affected by Mark
uploading xemacs to Debian and maintaining it there for his own use,
then please do be quiet.
