I agree.  I think the recently restated way of interpreting those two fields
made the most sense to me, and gives team members the choice of how to handle
those packages.

* Team in Maintainers is a strong statement that fully collaborative
  maintenance is preferred.  Anyone can commit to the vcs and upload as
  needed.  A courtesy email to Uploaders can be nice but not required.

* Team in Uploaders is a weak statement of collaboration.  Help in maintaining
  the package is appreciated, commits to vcs are freely welcomed, but before
  uploading, please contact the Maintainer for the green light.
