The easiest way to avoid that problem would be to require a new field in
the package "DM-Upload: okay" to allow DM uploads, as well as an entry
in the Maintainer:/Uploaders: field. That way sponsoring as is currently
done means exactly what it currently means, but adding an extra field
to the control file allows the non-DD maintainer to upload directly.
