I would assume violations of policy MUST directives are either
bugs in policy, which should be fixed, or an issue in the package
that needs to be fixed after etch releases.
If you are aware of issues that are violations of muSt
directives that are never going to be RC, there should be a bug
opened on policy with severity important for every one of them.
