Under what circumstances are we expecting people to think that letting
other DDs know how they voted is going to be against their interests?

If we are assuming that some DDs might start attacking people based on
the way they voted, then I'd suggest that it's more important to eject
such toxic people from Debian than it is to try to mitigate their
toxicity using measures that have negative side-effects.
