They can be merged. I missed #593909 when looking into the bugs
currently filed against debian-policy.
I will also close #526713 and #533495 once your suggested patch has been
applied to the policy as all user-defined fields and fields not defined
in policy (such as Vcs-*) will always be `simple' fields for which
folding is not allowed. Please correct me if I am wrong here.
