That makes sense. I've adjusted it as follows, putting the RMs in the
position of gatekeeper. I would be ok with changing that to a
delegated member of the CTTE or someone else if the RMs didn't want to
be the final gatekeepers here. (git 07402)

B 4. We overrule the decision of the meta-gnome maintainers to add a
B    dependency from gnome to network-manager-gnome; this dependency
B    should be [-removed for the release of wheezy. After the release of
B    wheezy, if-] {+removed. If+} in the opinion of the NM maintainer {+(and
B    before the release of wheezy the Release Managers)+} the concerns
B    raised in §4 of the CTTE decision #681834 have been addressed
B    through technical [-means,-] {+means (e.g. by preventing the starting of NM as
B    discussed in #688772),+} the meta-gnome maintainers may freely
B    adjust the dependencies as usual.
