It's not possible with the current model.

Also not possible directly, but I (or another archive admin, but in
reality I'm currently the only active one) could certainly just let
uploads to -proposed go through without any review at all and only
require the review for uploads to -updates. This would cut down the
delay to a day or so.

Due to a soyuz bug (or rather, missing feature), there's no way to
remove packages from a non-release pocket (so no way to remove stuff
from -proposed or -updates).

While I see that the current process is problematic for MOTUs, I would
like to ask for a little more time. We're down two of three
ubuntu-archive members, something we're going to discuss how to fix at
the distro sprint next week. Hopefully, we'll have at least one, maybe
two more people doing archive work in two weeks which should speed up
the process. So, if we can have a little patience, I'm hoping the
problem should become less severe soon.
