Nope. The proposal, AFAIUI, is about accepting non-packagers as DDs, but
(possibly) without upload rights. There is ongoing discussion about whether they
should or shouldn't have upload rights, and whether they should have an
(additional) different name, but most likely they will just be 'DDs'. They will
need to go through NM, except for T&S, since they won't have upload rights.
