It does and it works quite well (I have not yet seen a single complaint
concerning collab-maint or projects which have granted write access to all
DD through ACL). But I see no valid reason to change the current situation
for dpkg (and even more in light of the recent events).

I doubt that the lack of commit access prevented anyone to start
contributing for instance.
