I don't maintain the incoming system, but IMHO it is a very necessary stage to

a) make sure that packages are uploaded correctly (ie, all files are present
   and complete) before they get installed into the tree.
b) the maintainer signature is correct.

I'm sure there are other advantages to the system as well (that I just don't
know about).
