A little offtopic: it seems to me it is a flaw of svn, that it encourages the model of two classes of developers, those with a commit access (first class) and those without it (second class). Victor -- maybe you can try something like "git svn", so that you don't have to use the bugtracker and wait until someone reviews the patches?
I don't think that this changes anything at all. You can commit to your DVCS all the time, however, doing so is futile if your patches don't get integrated.
It does not make integration easier, but it certainly makes patch management easier for the patch writer. There are other means to manage patch on top of svn, but I find git-svn extremely useful. Actually, I use git-svn on top of svn repositories for projects I have write access to. git-svn is then a powerful way to manage patches (thanks to rebase).
