Well, the maintainer will be making the initial TDeb upload
(effectively +t0) so the restriction does normally only affect
non-maintainer uploads.

http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep4/#index9h2

I suppose the maintainer might be the one doing the +t1 upload in order
to avoid a source rebuild during a release freeze - but I can't say
whether that's going to be particularly common. (If the maintainer did
a string freeze before the upload that went into testing prior to the
release freeze, it shouldn't be necessary.) There might be cases where
a debconf question needs to be changed without needing any changes in
the source package itself and if that happens during a release freeze
then the maintainer could be the one to do it - can't see that
happening that often.

Might be better to document that later in the Specification rather than
in the abstract.
