Ultimately the maintainer will have final say whether something gets pushed to 
stable or not.  I really don't want to allow a maintainer proposing an 
update, and then somebody else coming along and pushing it without the 
original maintainer's blessing (yes, there are some exceptions, like security 
updates or whatnot).

If we had the automatic promotion of upgrades feature, the maintainer could 
have set a timeout and had it happen automatically unless they (or somebody 
else) stopped it.  But aside from that nobody else should be able to promote 
it behind the maintainer's back.
