  All stands in that _currently_.  Bill's GR proposal says:

  if a dd $X has src+bin upload rights on $arch, then he should have
bin-only upload rights on $arch.

  You can make that statement true by refuting the premise: This is true
if $X can do binary-only uploads, but ALSO if he cannot do src+bin
uploads on $arch.

  Meaning that in order to "apply" such a GR, if the ftp-master forbids
src+bin-uploads for alpha and arm[0] for people that do not have
binary-only upload rights, they would comply with the GR.

  Oh and yes, given some custom dak rules that forbids debian-policy
uploads, I believe some ftp-master at least have shown they can chose to
actually implement restrictions the twisted way.

Cheers,

  [0] since it's what this GR targets if I'm not mistaken
