This sounds like a good idea to me.

One thing that would be really helpful would be an ability for a
Maintainer of this kind to make updates without review iff it can be
shown to be safe.  (Where `safe' means `the Maintainer gets to screw
over people who run this program, but not anyone who doesn't.)

I'm not sure exactly what the criteria would be but basically you'd
diff the previous and new packages and allow only certain kinds of
changes (eg, changes to existing programs in /usr/bin would be fine).
