The big downside of uploading directly to unstable is that you as
package maintainers have got little influence when the package
*actually* hits unstable, as it has to go through NEW-processing.
This is just a general observation, I've no idea whether X would have
problems with that (perhaps you are going to be prioritized anyway).
