Oh, I don't disagree that swift action is good.

I just think that it's a matter of courtesy that should be independent
from the release cycle to ask the author/maintainer by default, not as a
second thought ("unless [...] have other solution"). You can always CC
Linus and ask him to revert if you don't get a response.

What's wrong with that? It doesn't actually delay the action, but it
makes the discussion much more friendly and cooperative instead of
giving the author and maintainer the feeling that their opinion only
matters as a second thought.
