I think I gave wrong impression to you.

"ANYBODY" does not work just because you said "right thing".

Please do not bring up in debian-policy without cordinated fix to
the issue.  Policy is not tool to force people.

We do not need arguments. 

We need facts, action and technical solution.

Most of PDF.GZ are under me and tetex-doc people.  Once we find good
technical solution, we may do it without policy change.  See internal
compression discusion too.
