Well, there again, we disagree :)
a release manager should usually not *reject* a package, unless backed
by policy.
However, in my view, holding a non-time-critical package pending
discussion, is exactly the appropriate thing.
This is not a time critical package, as far as I'm aware? :)

i think this is repeating myself, but...
Given the strange name... putting the templated stuff in etc doesnt
actually *help*, if they are going to have difficulty finding the
config file.
They are probably going to have to go read the docs. And if they read
the docs, then they will know where it is, and also where an example
file in a cleaner place would be.
