Uh. At the moment, the rule of thumb is that sponsored packages should
be handled and checked like one's own packages. Release critical bugs
sometimes happen and we still don't revoke upload permissions.

If we introduce a more fine-grained system that allows us to limit
upload permissions, we can talk about restricting sponsorship
privileges. I'd prefer to not discuss these matters on public mailing
lists, especially not in this thread.
