While we're on this subject, may I suggest (again) increasing the number of submissions per day based on the size of the team ? You can cap it at maximum of 4 or 5 submissions per day.
One submission per day is not a big deal for small teams, but if your team is bigger than a few people, it will be hurting you.
Absolutely untrue: submission limits are handicaps for everyone, regardless of team size. It would be grossly unfair to let larger teams have more submissions!
Personally, I think there is not much need for a submission queue, though it might help some teams. What I think would really be beneficial is to

As a bonus, such a system naturally lends itself to monetization for Kaggle. For a small fee, any team could buy a bonus pack of submission tickets. Obviously the fee should be small, and the maximum number of ticket add-ons should be limited, in the interest
of fairness. Such a system maintains the handicap -- any team can acquire the same total number of submission tickets as any other team -- and allows extra submissions for those that feel they need them.
