Being able to revert to the previous version would make it a lot less annoying since I don't have to reupload the old version and wait for it to be approved, or delay it until I have a fix and risk users installing the broken version.

Taking this staging idea one step further and allow different "channels" for an addon would also be interesting. e.g. dev/alpha/beta/stable channels which can be open for everyone or closed for only specific users or groups depending on the authors preferences. An already uploaded version in a "lower" channel could then be promoted to a higher one without having to reapprove it.
This is atually a great idea as it would remove the necessity to upload a new version package where old, with the same content, already exist. Had this happen to me several times as well.
