Also, submitreq is rather poorly named. :( "mergereq" might make more
sense.

It may seem like (intended to be a) a merge at first, but technically it
is not a merge, but a copy. It will overwrite the target package, _not_
apply a diff with the differences.

(Especially when you want to submit the package to some place where it
doesn't exist yet ;-)

Maybe this should be made more clear on the collaboration page.

Understood, but is the distinction interesting to users, or just you the
implementors?

Yes. Interesting to users. A merge would not overwrite the target, if
the "diff" doesn't "apply" anymore.
