This does not imply that such upstreams (which I agree are those who
would benefit most from the improvements being discussed) are using
systems hard to communicate with.

I get your word that KDE and glibc are in such a category, but we need a
bit of numbers before concluding that "large packages" implies "sucky
BTSs". Do you perhaps have some kind of evidence of this from bts-link?
(If this is so, it wasn't clear to me from the post I'm replying to.)
