I don't know if there is any specific hurry; it's just that we have
way too many RC bugs, and this bug didn't see any update since

Sure, I just cancelled the NMU.

IMO it doesn't scale for me to ask before each NMU, the overhead of
keeping lists and coming back etc. would be higher than the very rare
situation were I'm asked to cancel an upload to DELAYED, which I
happily do when it happens.

And for maintainers an upload to a DELAYED queue just needs a few
seconds to say "please cancel it" (or a few seconds to tag a bug
pending in advance, so RC bug squashers can move on).
