I'm happy enough if the DPL can stop delegating further on. That's by
far more practical.

May I ask the question the other way round: Why stop any working team on
adding new members only because the DPL is currently too busy to approve
that new member? (Of course, if the team disagrees within itself, or
whatever, the DPL is the instance being able to make a decision.)

Same for Stable Release Manager, please (which is especially funny,
