This feels to me like solving the wrong problem.  If the person really is
ready to become a DD, it would be better to find ways of addressing the
time lag before that process is complete.  If there are meaningful final
checks, this to an extent bypasses them, which is a little strange.  And
I'm also worried that it will leave a bunch of people stalled in this
limbo for even longer since their upload rights are "good enough" and we
lose motivation to finish fully integrating them into the project.
