I really don't know, and I am a DD.
So once I wanted to salvage a package which was removed in testing &
unstable. I uploaded into delayed & sent an email to debian-devel,
only to be hinted that I should have simply salvaged it (uploaded it
without asking any questions).
If the package was removed, and you are not a DD, I'd recommend to
prepare the package changes, upload to mentors and file RFS bug and
wait for sponsorship or comments.
