Although I agree that there is definitely something to be said for
this approach, I would like to note an additional issue with it:

- how to verify that katie will process uploads as expected (I'd been
  running dinstall -n, via dput -D; I suppose it would be possible to
  upload separately to the mirror and test there, but that's awkward.)

Extra ftp upload directories?  sftp access to the full queue area?

I believe http://incoming.debian.org/ is functioning as usual (though
it's a bit hard to tell shortly after a dinstall run ;-) ).  Other
queues, especially queue/new, can also be interesting to inspect, but
mirror delay there would hardly be the end of the world.
