This is by design; the people who make decisions in Debian are the
people who do the work.

All it takes to start a GR is 5 DDs, and 15 DDs to meet quorum. If there
aren't 5 DDs who are willing to make the DDs, and 15 DDs who are willing
to vote, then it's unlikely that there was actually a majority.

After all, for at least the listmaster team, there are already more than
5 DDs on the team...
