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.
