IMO the developer who wrote the patch should lead the process, not the
release team, nor the people which are affected by the patch. Those
can participate to the discussion.
He should provide informations about why the patch is needed (for
example, Nepal needs it) and an assessment of risk (which the code
reviewer can disagree with on the mailing list).

The projects I know (mozilla and GNOME) does something like what I
described above. Exception granting is after code review.
