Broadly, I agree with Andreas Tille. I think d-d-a is the main
required DD communication route, so a DEP might not have been seen by
all affected DDs until it appears there, so one can't really claim
consensus on that DEP before then, so it shouldn't reach accepted
status before it's sent to d-d-a, or even candidate status.
That given, I think it might be better to announce late drafts there,
rather than the initial mail, to avoid cluttering.
