One of the goals of the role of DM is to allow people that aren't as
much involved in the community and that don't really care about voting
rights to upload packages directly, thus reducing the amount of wasted
time from both sponsor and sponsee.

About having a working Debian box, a chroot should be enough for
building/testing packages, you don't need to have that as your main

For example, I run stable in my desktop system, cause I don't like my
installation to break, but I build and test all my packages in an
unstable chroot.
