        But, with the singular exception of DM's, non-DD folks are _not_
 in a position to control what's going on with their packages.

        I think that perhaps the DM's should be allowed to dcut their own
 package NMU's, but other non DD maintainers have not yet been accorded
 the trust and privilege of  uploading their own packages, and should
 not thus have the right to override other people making helpful
 changes, without that decision going through the review of
 sponsorship.  This is just keeping things consistent, in my opinion.
