In my experience, I rarely encountered a package in NEW where neither the
upstream archive nor the debian directory were downloadable from somewhere

A very large number of packages have at least their debian directory stored in
a publicly-accessible VCS, and the changes file indicates the MD5 sum of the
upstream source archive, so all in all, in most of the cases a review is
possible.  And as you noted, the packages are also often available on
