A couple of points here, since you seem to be blaming the review
process for the lateness of this package:

Submitting a new package request and expecting it to be reviewed in
under a week is simply not reasonable.  Sorry, it just isn't.  If
reviews are going to be blocked on package reviews, get those reviews in
early, not at the last minute.

If something important, like a new feature or something disruptive like
this is going to be held up by a package review but needs to get done by
feature or alpha freeze time, please make an announcement to that
effect, or at least indicate that in the review itself.  The review in
question (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=514602) said
nothing about this issue.  Otherwise the reviewers have no idea that
they should prioritize this review.

People go on vacation occasionally, or run out of free time.  As far as
I know, nobody is paid to review packages and we all have other work to
do.  If an important review gets blocked behind someone who is not
responding, let someone know about it.  I stole and finished the xz
review because it turns out the person doing the review went on vacation
and the entire mass rebuild was blocked on us getting xz in.

Bottom line: We can get things done when we know about them needing to
get done.
