Yes, you're right.

I set delayed on all my NMU uploads lately, fixing different
rebootstrap/cross-compilation bugs, plus some additions.  I didn't do
it for the reasons explained, and also to have time to fix things if
there was something wrong that needed urgent fixes (I don't always
know what I'll be doing in 10~15 days; and in this case, 2~5 was bad
because I would be travelling).

But perhaps I should just have waited, to allow for some feedback...
it's a good thing to take into account in future uploads :-)
