Sounds pretty much like what sistpoty and I have been writing up from
the revu-process-convergence BoF:

NOTE: This is currently not decided, but is presented for general
discussion. Please read the proposal and comment on it if you have
concerns. One consequence of this proposal is that every NEW package
uploaded to revu should be checked that a needs-packaging bug is being
closed in debian/changelog! (Similar to debian's ITP bugs).

NOTE2: I think Daniel Holbach wanted to have another look at it. Daniel,
can you perhaps follow up with your thoughts on this proposal?
