Will the package pools be able to implement the data distribution
(it's an old policy proposal) in a feasible way (it's really mean
making data a separate debian tree just like non-US). If we can have it,
this will mean that we can now have non-US "merge" in main transparently?

[Still need some more time to study this proposal.]
