That would be vastly preferable from enhanced red-tape on debian.net
assignments, IMHO. I will second your solution. We could also publish in
developers-reference and www.debian.net a best-practice usage guidelines
that *suggests* how to behave to minimize confusion and what notices to add
to any announcement postings to d-d-a, the blogsphere and social networks in
order to reduce the number of people that will think it is something other
than an experimental/beta/in-development DD-provided service.
