About new package point, what about the negative impact of newly
pushed package on distribution as a whole if it breaks to launch or
crashes in some event(produced in some essential functionality) and
was missed by packager/reviewer (2 people) ?

I am in favour of letting this decision made by testing team (folks
who contribute for testing in update-testing) based on package
importance and availability of contributors.
