In my experience, the RT rarely pre-approve freeze exceptions without much
more details of the change. And if you want an answer, you'd rather ask a
more formal questions than just add a CC to their list.

You should also use a bug so that it doesn't get lost...

I don't think that we want call for help on d-d-a for each package needing
some love. I would suggest:

1/ mailing debian-devel instead
2/ mention that -devel mail in a short paragraph in
3/ blog your call for help on planet.debian.org
