NMUs don't necessarily need to be minimalistic -- for instance packaging new 
versions is something that can be done with NMUs.  This is admittedly not 
terribly clear and I raised this question in #672198 which hasn't had any 
activity for almost two years.

For cases where the maintainer is unresponsive for an extended period, I'd 
recommend requesting a new version via a 'wishlist' bug, then releasing a new 
version as a -0.1 NMU.  Others (myself included) have done this successfully.

As always, thanks for your continued work in Debian.  ;-)
