I'd expect any sponsored upload to be checked by the sponsoring DD, be
it uploads for packages I (as a non-DD) maintain, for NMUs, or for QA
uploads. Preparing a (source) package and asking for a sponsor is
merely to ease the uploading DD's task, who will rebuild the binary
package anyway in most cases. (And if it's a proper NMU, there will be
a patch in the BTS anyway.)
