I may be remebering wrong, but an argument for bodhi against those who
wanted a simpler push mechanism (like wwhat was in the fedora extra days)
and argued that bodhi will add more unecessary delays was that there 
always was the possibility to push to stable for packagers.

Bringinig down productivity of good packagers for a few bad ones, is,
in my opinion, not a good move. 

Also, I find it quite ridiculous to have to give use cases, if people 
in FESCo have never needed a direct push to stable, they necessarily 
haven't done enough packaging -- though seeing who is in FESCo, it looks 
quite strange to me since some members are seasoned packagers and some 
even were here before bodhi.
