No, I was replying to Thijs Kinkhorst who wants to merge FD and DAM and
only have two people check the whole report.

Your proposal of having other AMs be able to sign applications that they
think are correct is quite different and does seem quite sane to me.

Sure, I still prefer your "many AM sigs can help an application go
faster" idea where AMs sign a completed app and then there is a check by
DAM if it's deemed necessary (despite the sigs) before it's passed on to
have the account created I think.
