From what I've heard, we don't have two active DAMs who work in
parallel. That might be outdated of course.

We have 900+ developers, so finding around 3-4 people which we grant
that privilege shouldn't be that hard. We already trust 900 people with
root shells on every Debian machine (this is often used in discussions
around NM), so we should be able to trust a few more than one (or two)
people with root on our own machines, right?

And even if you think that'd be a problem (which I don't), I think it
might be possible to implement the account creation in such a way that
DAM members can create regular-DD accounts, but that they can't add
superuser accounts or elevate regular accounts. With an LDAP system,
such a thing should at least in theory be possible, but I don't know the
implementation specifics though.
