NM and DAM for unlimited upload access, at least.  I think it may vary
depending on what the permissions are, but for things like that, I don't
see any reason to change who is doing the vetting from the current model.

I do too when NM includes T&S.  The point is that we have contributors who
aren't interested in packaging and don't have any need or desire to go
through T&S and learn a bunch of information about packaging that they'll
never use.  One shouldn't have to go through that part of NM unless one
wants to have unlimited upload access.

I don't believe giving people unlimited upload access without going
through T&S is a good idea.
