        Umm, no. If you can't trust people not to abuse the rights
 they have in Debian, you definitely do not want them to influence
 decisions taken by the project.

        Technically, any DD can wreak havoc by uploading trojans,
 hijacking packages, and various and sundry mayhem. We just trust them
 not to (with a big stick after any infractions).
