I tend to side with Xavier here - Maybe we took the wrong decision
here. Maybe the best would have been just to state that our
group-maintained packages _have_ enough vigilant upload-able DDs not
to need DMs. So, we can keep everybody interested as uploader, and
just disable x-dm-upload-allow (even include checks for it in our QA

And anyway... Well, this is our inner group-oriented policy. I don't
think we should insist on it being followed as strictly as the Debian
policy - Our policy (in this area, at least) mandates our
organizational arrangings, nothing strictly technical. And it _does_
allow for elasticity, it _does_ allow for exceptions.
