But he removed the file created by the debconf script in /etc/ssh,
which IMHO counts as a change of local configuration by the
administrator under 11.7.3 of policy  As such, the upgrade
script must respect this change.  I believe it would be reasonable to
open a serious bug against ssh for not doing so.  See the thread about abusing debconf recently.

I don't see why it was reasonable to bring up a problem with a single package here.
