As per Policy? It should be. Experimental uploads are not intended for
a release, it's no big deal if they don't comply.
I'm still concerned about the heisenbug problem. This is the comment I
wrote about it back then:
# Full debugger support is disabled by upstream when a branch is close to
# release. Unfortunately this can trigger the appearance of heisenbugs
# which were previously hidden (we've been hit by this already, see #651624).
# This disables full debugger support in advance, so that the build
# configuration which is going to be used for release is tested during the
# whole release cycle. If you need a debug kernel, simply remove/comment
# the following lines:
Do you think we can live with this? It would mean bugs appear
precisely the first time you upload to unstable.
