Out of interest: How is the following problem handled?

At the time when the part of testing where package abc belongs to:

Package: abc
Version: 3

Package: abc
Version: 1

- Version 2 of abc fixed a RC bug.
- Version 3 of the package didn't make it into testing because it has
  e.g. a dependency on a more recent version of a library that didn't make
  it into testing.
- The maintainer of abc is perhaps busy/MIA/...

If this problem isn't handled we'll release with __known and fixed__ RC
bugs in our packages.
