Right. I put only the two typical DD rights in the proposal as the
rights you will lose. For sure, technically it would be a bit more,
like loosing access to project machines. However, I don't think it
would be beneficial to spell out in the actual text all
technicalities; maybe DSA can come up with an appropriate wording
which essentially corresponds to "not being able to exercise DD
rights" anymore? (Cc-ing the team address)

Things like @debian.org address should probably stay for a while, but
I would be happier to leave those details to DSA and hence outside the
actual text proposal.

FWIW, I'd be fine even with 1 year period, and I've tested how the
numbers will change: the accounts that will get disabled would be
about 240.  The rationale behind that the 2 years proposal was that
you'll get a chance to vote in at least 2 different DPL elections, but
it's fine with me either way.
