That's not very fair on the maintainer who is unfortunate enough to
upload their package just before ten others.

I enquired previously about whether we might have some developers
assist the ftpmasters by pre-assessing packages and reporting
appropriately, which might ease the process. I don't know if this would
actually help them or just duplicate work, since they need to be sure
that it's been done properly in any case. (ftpmasters: your thoughts?)

I'd happily help out in this area, but not being a DD I'd probably need
considerable mentoring, at least to start with.
