Maybe not pay a DD to do Debian work, but pay a DD to work on the
competing product.  If that DD holds a job in Debian that requires
special privileges, and that job is neglected without the DD in
question resigning or allowing other people to do the work that he is
neglecting, a loyality issue arises.
