sounds sensible to me.

- how will the import be done?
- is it up for the maintainer to request it? or only for non-base system
- or does the maintainer has a magic command to do?
- will submitting a package for rebuild bork the list of maintainer (mdv
  uses the "maintainer = 1st to submit" scheme)
- do we have an estimated planning with the different steps?
