The assumtion about a DD is that they can be trusted to upload with only
a neglible risk to the archive. You assert that there is not enough
certainty about sponsored uploads because of the unknown or inconsistent
quality of sponsor's reviews. Should this process be halted or
updated/formalize? I saw one or two pages on DD's people page about
their standards(m. palmer) but not an 'official' one and also
sponsors.debian.net (not .org) which has not been made official.
