It means that volunteers have to spend time on this. In any case. And
maintainer has to wait etc. 

I wonder why we don't automate more stuff in Debian. After all we have
all the abilities to do it.

Great. I am not trying to prove that this is better in all cases. We are
talking about the overall case. With your argument everything should go
into new and be checked by ftp admins. After all I could break the new
package even without any upstream change. So better put everything into
NEW and have the ftp masters check. 

Silly, isn't it?
