I think that unpolite NMUs are sporadic (or I hope :) I think they're 
as sporadic as psycothic developers). 
I never did a NMU, simply 'cause I always contacted the maintainer first with 
the patch (e.g. gnucash which had some problems in the recent past) and
he always has been responsive. And I have been happy of this.
Anyway, patch tagging on BTS or NMU for me are equivalent, and I have
no need of reading my name in changelog files around...

Anyway, NMU by QA team could be more acceptable for you or others?
QA team could define a good policy of QA-NMUs and those kind of accidents
could vanish.

If we solved both this problem and MIA problem, maybe we could do a little step
towards releasing woody.
