This is all good and I'm very happy that you (as well as other FD team
members, I'm sure) review those mailboxes so thoroughly. The fact that
after that step, people can wait for 6 months for account creation is
the problem pointed out by Lucas and not addressed by your reply.

The question which is not answered is: why, after FD review, we should
wait for *another* review by DAM?

I'd be perfectly fine with FD being the last review step, and DAM
"just" in charge of creating the account, trusting FD judgement.

What would we be missing that way?
