Thanks for picking up on this Adeodato.

The limitation here is not uploading, but migration to testing.

That should not really be needed as the D-I RM will (or at least should) 
just NACK any unblock requests for relevant packages. Although it could 
be relevant for the RT when they are asked if a change would be 
acceptable before uploading.
I just wanted to point out that this is an added limitation on top of 
the "normal" limitation of "could break the current release of the 

However, a full list of udebs (excluding kernel udebs) included in images 
for the current D-I release can be obtained using e.g:
$ ssh merkel.debian.org
$ cd /org/ftp.debian.org/ftp/dists/testing/main
$ cat installer-*/current/images/MANIFEST.udebs | \
  sed -nr "/^[[:space:]]/ s/^[[:space:]]*([^ ]*) .*/\1/p" | \
  grep -v -- "-di$" | sort -u

Note: if this command is run now the list will of course be for D-I Beta2 
and not yet for RC1 as that is still to be uploaded and migrated!
