I can't see why removing an orphaned package that has no RC bugs, and
let's say, even no important bugs, and which is stable in the sense that
there's no new upstream version (e.g. an established font), from testing
makes testing's quality better.  What about a hypothetical package that
has no bugs at all, but some users according to popcon?
