You could use the same criteria to automatically quarantine the upload
and email the maintainer saying "Upload transitions between
distributions. Do $FOO if you really meant it." 

$FOO could be "reply to this email" or "upload .command file to take the
upload out of quarantine" etc. There is no ftp-master/-assistant
involvement this way.
