I don't see how I could merge Steffen's proposal with mine. My main
problem with Steffen's proposal and yours is that I'm strictly against
the new DM class as an alternative to the DD (for reasons, I've already
explained in related threads on this list), but still see the need for a
more motivating NM process.

Maybe we could just add both alternatives to the ballot? :P
