If person X is a DD and maintaining 2 packages and has never sponsored
anything, then (I dont like 'demoting' as it is an insult to their
contribution) they would not notice a change in their status if it still
allows them to contribute in the same way they did before. So a DD would
be someone who wants to contribute in more ways than a DM and thus
should have a higher standard. Both can upload but the DM would have a
set number of packages which could be increased while a DD would have
more leeway/trust.
