Do you not have a team/group meeting where you discuss:
1) Massive Backlog
2) Continuous Improvements (where this would fall)
3) Code Reviews
4) Branches and the main branch stability?

Without clarity of purpose and buy in, I assume it isn't happening.
And as professional developers we spend 10% of our time doing continuous improvement. An analogy to painting is cleaning up when you are done. If I hire a painter, I expect him to leave a finished product free of masking tape, and if he used my brushes, they are cleaned, but if he used his, I think I still paid him to clean them... I am 100% okay if he does that on the jobsite as long as he cleans up before he leaves...

So, we allocate it. Otherwise the code just starts cracking under it's own weight. With multiple developers we assign one person to be responsible to make breakthroughs (like parsing all the SQL and bind variables, getting that added to the build process, and either refactoring the code, or the "fixed when touched" approach and verified in code review).
