Then maybe we should consider all bugs with severity >= normal as
release-critical, and not release until they are all fixed?

We have to draw the line somewhere. When people are regularly annoyed by
delays in some part of debian, maybe it's because we should move the
line slightly.

Most of our users would probably agree to trade a small amount of
quality with faster packaging of new versions, and more timely releases.
Also, we are all volunteers, it's important to keep the "fun" factor
high in Debian, or people will just get bored of contributing to Debian.
