This would definetly be useful, as it would help someone from wasting
time preparing the NMU in the first place, but it certainly doesn't
excuse making NMUs without notifying the maintainer beforehand.

Help is certainly useful, but there's still no message to
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=517466 regarding the
actual patch that was used to NMU, nor any message before the NMU
regarding intent to NMU.

All of that should happen before uploading an NMU, and certainly
should have happened by now.
