Hmmm, I do not think that it needs specific notice that DMUA flag is
set.  The sponsor should check *all* packaging details and I see no
point in giving a specific one an extra warning - so I can not buy this
argument.  I also can not see a real problem in "handing over the DMUA
flag from one DM to another DM as long there is not practical evidence
that there is a clear misuse.  If I as a sponsor trust a DM to maintain
a package properly this includes the ability to decide who might be
involved in the packaging as an additional maintainer.

Kind regards
