This sounds like a valid reason for rejecting a package.

Not that I was a friend of yada, but AFAIK it's allowed for a maintainer 
to use whatever tools he wants for his packaging.

If this is wrong and I missed a part of Debian policy not allowing yada, 
RC bugs should be filed against all packages using yada.

And ftpmaster alone was a bad point to disallow yada.
As long as a later conversion to yada is allowed, it's quite useless.
