Just for the record I objected quite strongly and provided what I thought
was a reasonable alternative to what they have currently specified. Their
response was to create a bureaucratic box to contain everyone who
disagreed <sigh>

Debian will probably never comply with the spec as it is written. We will
be lucky if alien gets us enough compliance for the real-world

I also think it's likely that we are screwed from this point on, as
any future specs are likely to be at least compatible with this one.
