    I thought ~motu-swat was a coordination effort of people working
on such things, rather than an approval body.  I'd be much more in
favor of something that requried N members of ~ubuntu-dev to ACK, so
as not block if specific individuals were unavailable for some period
of time.

    Bug tags sound like a great way to get the verification:
interested parties could quickly search for affected bugs, and then
mark them "universe-sru-verified" or whatever once there was a
sufficient number of positive responses.  The archive admins could
check that the bugs carried that tag when uploading to ~proposed for
wider testing.
