The point is not to paralyze Debian development, but you should never
upload to unstable a package that you *know* is broken. Uploading to
unstable means “this should be good enough for a stable release, but it
hasn’t been tested against the rest of the distribution”.

We usually don’t upload upstream development releases to unstable, yet I
don’t see this as “paralyzing Debian development”.
