I'm one of the people who "disagrees", but actually I don't. ;-)  When
planning an NMU, you must notify the maintainer, and give him time to
react, and respond to the reaction.  That's basically the same thing as
consulting him IMO, except that "no response" leads to "Ok".  I think
that is good, it's one of the reasons NMUs are possible at all.
