The only mention of subsections in the Debian policy manual is section
2.1.7.  It does not dictate what the sections should be.  It simply says
that they exist and that you should check the current distribution to see
what sections are available.  However, sections don't actually exist in
the archives now that we have package pools, so now it seems subsections
should be a policy thing.

So ... that being the case, we need to step back from the education
section for a minute and make a proposal that there be a sub-policy for
sections much as there is a sub-policy for menu structure.  Once there is
such a policy, we can talk about adding the education section to that

Anyway, I think it will be easier to argue for a "Section: archives" once
the education menu is populated with packages.  Until then, we can relax
a bit about the lack of a section policy. :)
