I think I'm finally getting to understand what you are saying... 

I need some time to digest the idea but Uploaders were always equivalent to 
Maintainer, having equal rights etc. Amendment suggests that Team in 
Maintainer field means too much power for everybody i.e. Uploaders do not 
matter while Team in Uploaders indicate that co-maintainers are engaged in 
maintenance and want to be informed... This is still not good as it is quite 
different from other teams and also because it implies specific 
interpretation of fields that are not entirely obvious...

All the best,
 Dmitry Smirnov.
