This is an important distinction, thank you.

Surely the requirement is not to *ignore* a serious bug, but to
*remove* the offending package unless the bug is resolved?
Yes, I understand we're talking about, in some cases, kernel packages
that have these bugs. What I don't see is why these serious bugs, that
(as you point out) violate the Debian project's foundation documents,
can be ignored for the sake of releasing on a particular date.
