Thanks, Charles!

Could I humbly suggest that for a change as significant as this, it
would be worth asking for feedback on debian-devel and debian-user as
well?  It could be that there are users who will be significantly
affected by this but who don't read the -policy list.  Then again,
there may well be silence or approval from those lists too.
