This is already possible.  If the maintainer does not think the package
should go into testing at all, s/he can file a dummy release-critical
bug against it.  See, for instance, these ones:


If, on the other hand, the maintainer thinks the "cooling off" period
should be 5 or 2 days (instead of the default 10 days), the package can
be uploaded with priority "medium" or "high", respectively.
