In fact these are two separate issues: a) why the infrastructure doesn't use 
these packages; b) where to collect P-a-s calls for updates. I just read at 
#128280, that these calls for updates are not wanted as wishlist bugs against 
quinn-diff package, but I think that storing them in public media i.e. BTS is 
far most robust solution (reveals when wishlists have been filed, and how 
have been dealt with), than just posting them to someone's mailbox... but 
anyway I'd tend to comply with the maintainer choice as said in the buglog.
