I get the impression you're misinterpreting the proposal partly:

Note that it does _NOT_ talk about full upload rights, but about upload 
rights to specific packages. 

Essentially the proposal allows non-DD maintainers (we have 900+, see the 
thread starting at [1] for details) to upload their own packages IF AND 
ONLY IF their sponsor has indicated agreement with that by having added 
the "DM-Upload-Allowed: yes" in the control file of the previous upload.
