That's not the point being made: As I understand Manoj's point, it is
that tagging a bug ‘lenny-ignore’ is an active decision that a
particular bug, even if it represents a DFSG violation, will not be
considered in the decision to release.

To that extent, it *is* making the decision that it is acceptable to
release Debian with DFSG-violating works, in advance of the decision
to actually release.
