Err, so non-DD's cannot check it anymore? Why does that service need to
be a DD only service? There were only the .changes to begin with.
Iirc, it is adviced against people to just apply for DD if they only
want to maintain a package or two, because all stuff needed to maintain
a package is already readily available for everyone, even accounts on
various other archs on request.
By restricting such services, you make it harder for the non-DD's to
track issues themselves, and thus they probably are going to mail
ftp-masters more often to enquire about the status, while it could also
be made possible that they can check the status themselves...
