Sorry, I said "low-priority packages" when I meant "low-priority fixes".
The starvation happens because queue ordering is based strictly on package
priority, and no consideration is given to the urgency of uploads.

What we need is for arm to make headway against the Needs-Build queue (which
is starting to happen) and for testing-security to be operational (which is
starting to happen).  Freezing would be so completely beside the point if
the infrastructure isn't in place to let us release; and freezing while arm
is lagging behind would just make the release team's job of sorting out RC
bugfixes that are missing from testing that much harder.
