(I'll presume people can read Ian's post for his reasoning, so that I
don't have to quote it)

Personally, I think non-DDs participating is great; the only problem
comes when that starts becoming a way for people who aren't members
of the project to block development; which can happen either by people
spending time arguing with non-DDs unnecessarily or by people thinking
that people speak for the project when disagreeing, though they don't.

Avoiding that is a challenge, but an easy first step is just to say
something when people might mistakenly think someone who's not a DD is
speaking for the project.
