Hi Cyril,

So you're subscribed to d-boot now? :-)

I know that it is going to be allowed in the future and because of that I 
don't doubt that it (mostly?) works.
But AFAIK *currently* it's not allowed by policy [1], except for build 
deps. And thus it should not yet be used in uploads.

That other packages violate policy is not really a convincing argument.
A reference to an (official) statement from FTP-masters would be.
