Why don't we add a status field into the PTS, where a maintainer
can denote her "NMU policy" for a given source package? E.g.
a selection box, ranging from "Don't dare to touch this, I bite"
to "Feel free to 0d-NMU for every severity as long a you send the
patch". Or a free-form field, if that doesn't suffice.
