That seems like a good idea, if we're in agreement that the point of DM is to
be a bridge status whilst someone works through NM. I think that was the
intention and presume it still is. There's a risk that someone will get DM
status and then only care about a small handful of packages and so not bother
to progress with NM. I think I've seen that a few times.
