FWIW, I never understood it that way, at all. In the context of a team, "Uploaders" just lets me know about people who consider themselves to be among the people regularly working on this package, so a good contact point. But if Maintainers is a team, and I'm in that team, I'm free to upload, whether in Uploaders or not. And if I'm a frequent uploader, I add myself to Uploaders. A good example is the Debian Python Team, where the policy  explicitly states that "[anyone in the Team] can commit to the Git repository and upload as needed".
