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.
