Adding this possibility is opening Pandora’s box. Once you allow this,
people start using packages that are neither in unstable nor in testing,
and they don’t help us working on our packages at all. This also adds an
extra burden on maintainers who want to use this feature.

Could you please give a concrete example of where this would be needed?
I think all existing cases should be covered by uploading directly to
either t-p-u or unstable.
