I like it a lot.  It's somewhat debatable how to deal with divergence
between the sume of topic branches and the integration branch/real
source package contents, but that's something the package maintainers
can be tasked with.  What's particularly charming about this scheme is
that such discrepancies do not impact repeatable builds.
