I think not rejecting uploads when something is missing causes duplicate
work for the other members of the SRU team as they end up reviewing the
same SRU and upload only to discover that it is missing information.
This is particularly true since the queue doesn't know if an SRU bug is

Having said that, I currently don't reject things because there is not a
good way to communicate the reason for rejection to the uploader.
