Good.  I believe you share this attitude with most package
maintainers. :)

If your view on the patch already is in BTS, as a reply to the mail
supplying the patch, I would be very surprised if someone did an NMU
without furhter comments.

The problem is that there are lots of bugs in BTS with a patch and no
comment on the patch from the package maintainer.  These rightfully
increase the chance of NMUs.
