Sorry, but the devil is in the details. In this case is precisely in
the "etc." :-)

For example, do you think we should have a "member" which can vote but
can not upload? I think we should, and that's the main benefit of this
proposal. A benefit I think we should have as a project.

Let me play with ASCII art:

  Rights | Vote    Upload
  Role   |
  OUT    |  0         0
  DD     |  X         X
  DM     |  0         X
  DC     |  X         0

DC is the Debian Contributor role we are missing.

Of course you can add rights (i.e., columns to the table), and hence
add an exponentially growing numbers of roles, the point is which of
these roles are the interesting one. IMO DC is one of them.
