I've heard it observed that it's rather odd that a developer doing an
upload can only reduce the delay from the default, and not increase
I found this a moderately convincing line of reasoning but arguably it
should be accompanied by a change to the migration times associated
with each of the urgency levels.

I agree that that was an interesting proposal but it seems separate to
me. It's certainly a lot more work.
