how is that different to the state being? Today, a DD needs to add a
DMUA flag, and any DD can do another upload to revoke the DMUA flag
again any time.

Having that said, this might have happened some times in past, but I
don't think we ever had that problem for real. Ansgar is not changing
things here, we'd just lower the threshold to actually change something.
