        Well, that does not sound like a delegation. And as all powers
 flow as powers of the DPL, delegated to other people -- I think the DPL
 ought to be actively involved in delegation.

        Well, as I read the constitution, the added team members do not
 really have the powers themselves, but are sub-delegates or assistants,
 and the delegated folks have the responsibility. This is like
 sponsorship; the non-DD's do not have the power to upload, but a DD
 takes the responsibility (the DM thing just makes this sub delegation
 of upload powers more automated and formal).

        I still think that it is a good idea to have the DPL in the
 loop.  Are there issues that I am missing? I mean, delegations seems to
 be one of the major tasks that a DPL has; and I don't think there is an
 onerous delay in delegations.

Chihuahuas drive me crazy.  I can't stand anything that shivers when
it's warm.
