Really? I don't think there's *that* many cases where a negative piece
of karma is filed between the submission and the push which you'd want
to ignore. And even in the rare cases when that happens, if we warn or
even unsubmit the update, it's not like you can't do anything about it.
If we make it a warning...ignore the warning. If we make it withdraw the
update...just submit it again. I'm having a hard time seeing that fall

I don't really mind requiring bug numbers for negative karma (though, if
anything, I reckon that'd have *more* problematic corner cases in
itself). But I'm not sure it's really necessary for this.
