Exactly, but that presupposes that the new packages are better than the
old ones ... which is exactly what the question is about: _Is_ the new
package better than any/all of the old ones, and why? You can't get an
answer to that question if people aren't allowed to ask it.

It's far easier to sort this out before a package enters Debian than
sometime afterwards. Additional hint: There's a reason why ITPs are
forwarded to d-d.
