In effect, yes. Perhaps they could be left in the distribution
though; a grave bug in an extra package is not a big deal,
and even the broken package might be useful to somebody (as
opposed to no package at all). Also, they could be left out
of the 'release critical bugs' list, because they get in
the way and aren't really release critical anyway.
