Well, unless you explicitly want to undermine the authority of
ftpmaster over NEW processing, which I do not advise[*], I would say
"...may be done by any developer, subject to verification by the
ftpmaster role."

I think this makes it clear that the NEW processing that happens as a
result of adding something to non-free would _not_ be bypassed in this
case - unless, of course, the ftpmasters actually want that.

[*] It is absurd to even _have_ mandatory NEW processing by ftpmasters
    if we don't trust them to use it correctly in the cases covered by
    your proposal.
