Why developers should care more about packages not entering
into unstable that packages not entering into testing?

I worry about indirect delays. Scenario: developer A@ do good job with packages A, but A requires packages B. What should A do?
Waiting and not lose the motivation?
Help B@, maybe with a NMU, but still waiting the canonical time for NMU (on normal time)?

Do A@ have knows enought about B to help? (Maybe B is in a other language, for glibc, XFree86,.. specific architectures knowelenge are maybe required,...

If you want to implement such pre-autobuild I would like to see:
- relaxed NMU time
- the developers (maybe requiring not only uploader) could override the waiting status in pre-unstable queue.
