I don't see that as a problem, inherently. Policy is a key cornerstone
of what Debian is. It shouldn't be trivial to change, unless the change
is itself trivial.
If necessary changes are really being blocked, then we should look at
ways of streamlining the policy procedure. But I haven't seen major
evidence that that's necessary yet.
