Because this can upset many things (besides dpkg which doesn't like it
and doesn't allow for a smooth upgrade) like intrusion detection et al.

I had it also on debian-devel IIRC.
I've not been tracking the autobuilder systems for a very long
time now, so I just assigned it to general from where I was sure
it would be picked up and forwarded to the correct person.
Utilizing the bug-tracking system was maybe not the most efficient
way to get the problem fixed, but for sure it is a reliable one.
