 Even with the little experience I've had as AM, I agree with Martin on
 this and I think this would things easier for everyone.  Recently I've
 had a NM that's isn't sure what he wants to do in Debian.  He wants to
 do "something".  With Martin's proposal these people would be forced to
 figure out what this "something" is before applying.  This would also
 force NMs to actually go thru the relevant documentation beforehand.
