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.
