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.
