Do you specifically agree it was wrong in this instance to upload
directly to incoming and not to a delayed queue?

In future will you agree to include NMU patches in a bug report to the
patch and unless there is a strong reason to do otherwise to upload to
a delayed queue?

I'm asking you these things in hope of making sure we're on the same
page.  If you don't agree then I'll try to convince you that you're
wrong, but if we are both understanding the best practice the same
way, then there's really no more to say.
