Sure. But why shouldnt trusted non-DDs not be able to upload their teams 
packages? And a subscriber and active Debian Edu developer I think it would 
make complete sense and would be helpful, if certain non-DDs from our team 
(not all of them, but I have 2-3 in mind) could upload to Debian.

DDs are busy, are not available (working, traveling, broken hardware, 
different timezones), and so on - why put more load on them without need?

Plus I also know of other people (also more than two), who dont want to become 
DDs, but who would like to upload their packages and which IMO also should be 
able to do so.

Why make participation harder than it needs to be? And if those specific 
uploaders break things horrible (which I dont think they'll do, otherwise I 
wouldnt recommend them to be able to upload in the first place), we can still 
remove the package, remove the upload rights and live happily ever after.
