I would guess for the most part package is  NEW are not totally new 
packages, but rather packages with a new upstream release that causes 
(minor?) ABI changes or e.g. changes in packaging because of licencing 
issues forcing _existing_ packages to go through NEW.
In those cases I can well understand maintainer's frustration if NEW 
processing suddenly takes weeks again after we all just got used to 
having NEW processed within days for a while.

Your point is valid, but I doubt it is valid for most packages currently 
waiting in NEW.
