Simply change the NMUs to be always 0-day, for all bugs >=normal. Which
means - upload and mail to BTS at the same time.
And such dumb rules some maintainer have like "never touch my package"
get ignored - if it complains it should do a better maintainer job...

I wouldnt like to be forced to team maintenance.
Did you see my suggestions? I think adding your '0day NMU for all bugs
= normal' idea for non team maintained packages would do.
