I think we can make the actual publication much easier (eg. not require 
coordination of several people) without changing the requirements for 
review and approval.

Just because you have technical access to do something doesn’t mean you 
are allowed to do it, it’s just a matter of trust and ability to clean 
up in case someone abuses that trust.

But yes, we could start for example with just WDs and see how it goes.
