drawing conclusions from something is sometimes difficult and might lead to 
wrong results: the fact there isnt an unblock request doesnt mean we think 
thats the most suitable version.

(and I do know about unblock requests and other working tools and procedures 
of the release team.)

the changes are not suitable according to their policy, so discussing is a 
bit, aeh, difficult. (been there, done that, though. ie for the squeeze 

but, way more importantly: the changes are not enough yet, so it doesnt really 
matter wheather 1.702 or 1.704 are in wheezy, we really want the (currently 
non-existing 1.705 or 1.706), so why bother with 1.704.

And thats why the above statement is somewhat wrong. (Which is fine, I do 
wrong statements all the time.) Glad that I understand the intention of your 
original mail.
