- Not everybody wants to be DD. [1]
- Not everybody deserves to be DD. [2]

[1] They exist, they are not a majority, but I don't see why should refuse
their help.
[2] The NM process rejects some people who have the technical abilities to
maintain packages but who are not in sync with the rest of the community.
I fail to see why we should refuse their technical contribution. The NM
process also scares away people who don't have the technical abilities to
become DD. That doesn't mean they wouldn't be able to maintain some
simple packages.
