I bet for lack of time... all the dpkg developers that I know are
reasonable and wouldn't want to throw away the work of someone else if he
has taken care to ask for regular review of his work.
Ian Jackson said he's ready to give advice on dpkg developement in
general. Furthermore it did some groundwork on a testing framework for
Ubuntu (it was a package testing framework), so I'm sure that he could
review your work in that area.
Just go ahead!
