That's not strictly true: DMs can only not upload packages that would go
to NEW. This includes uploading packages to the backports suites (if
they were not in backports before).

However unstable and experimental share overrides, that is uploads to
experimental do not have to pass NEW when the package is already in
unstable (and the other way around).
