Not a great deal, I suspect. I think you would be within your rights to file
bugs about missing dependencies as "serious" or "important", which should
prevent the packages going into testing and hence provide a bit more
motivation for the maintainers to fix the problem. Other than that, source
NMUs are the order of the day.
