True, but the proposal splits the current DD in two types, namely DDM
and DNDM.  Currently DNDM doesn't exist, but people who aren't using
upload rights because that's not what they're doing for Debian are also
DD.  So at least one of them is going to get a new name.  It would be
very nice to have a naming where DDM (or perhaps just DM) would still be
DD, but I couldn't think of a scheme where that was possible while still
showing the logic of the roles.  Calling every member a "developer" just
doesn't make sense.
