The BinNMU procedure covers the "a binary was built incorrectly and I can
fix it without touching the source" situation. Third-level Debian version
numbers and all.

What we're talking about here, however, is "a binary wasn't yet built at
all because the buildd didn't yet get to it", i.e. a Porter Upload,
section 5.10.2.

Given the absence of any restriction, in theory any DD can build+upload
any package whatsoever which hasn't been built yet; in practice, buildds
are automated systems which run unsupervised and therefore need stricter
