It means that those modules will need to maintain their own table if they 
don't already. They will need to join to this table in order to provide a 
queue listing. Not too expensive I think ... The admin/node option for 
viewing the moderation queue goes away and gets replaced by these various 
contrib modules. I can't think of other drawbacks.

I think this is a good thing. Chris - I think a patch is in order, and we 
can review from there.
