  That's very harsh, especially since either DM tries to address the NM
problem, and in that case Bastian remarks and doubt stands, or it
addresses another problem that is pretty insignificant and unconvincing
to me, having a lot of secondary effects on the former.

  Can someone (AJ, Martin or you who are the current supporters) explain
which exact problem this is supposed to solve please ? And if the answer
is "it helps people who don't really want an @debian.org address neither
vote rights to have upload rights" then have you some numbers ? because
it definitely has repercussions on NM, which are unclear and definitely
questionable, and I would be quite surprised that the number of people
we're talking about are even comparable to the number of people going
through NM.

  You may be embarrassed to answer, but calling peoples argument
superficial and dubious looks like handwaving and evasion to me.
