While I can understand your frustration, your argument looks flawed to
me. The measure of refusing _automatically_ uploads being affected by
(certain) lintian errors can not be classified as "a new duty",
precisely because it will be automatic. Actually, it has even chances
to reduce the work-load related to processing NEW.
