I'm puzzled by this ordering. The wording in the "tight" option was
specifically chosen to be advisory and reflect the current state of
affairs. While I can see preferring to avoid dependencies between
packages and the init system, it's not clear to me why one would rank
the current state of affairs with regards to init system dependencies
below FD unless one was trying to engage the dropping mechanism of
A.6.3.

In fact, if this was your intention all along, it's not clear at all to
me why we had to couple these votes.

Given that the odds of a miracle are one in one million, and events
which could be a miracle happen every second, the odds of not seeing a
miracle in a month are less than 8 in 100. Clearly miracles are not
all that miraculous.
