As mentioned in the last mail we sent to d-d-a (and several at various points before that) if you have serious concerns that important updates to your package won't be included in the release, the correct approach
is to talk to us, not try and work around us. The net effect of the
above is more likely to be that the urgency will be overriden on the
britney side as if the package had been uploaded with a lower urgency.

How would this work? Will you modify the script to look for such cases?

No, I was referring to cases which we noticed rather than any automatic form of detection; otoh, debian-devel-changes isn't that hard to grep.

As Martin mentioned, britney can then be told to change the assumed urgency on a case-by-case basis when considering migration.
