Why on earth would #227941 be anything but a wishlist? It is very easy
to reopen an archived bug, all you need to do is unarchive it first.
For your main point, I don't think BTS is a release system, so bugs
filed against it won't be RC, no matter what their BTS severity
happens to be - just like bugs filed against the ftp.debian.org
pseudopackage won't affect the release. I also don't think BTS is
something that should be described in the Policy Manual.
Anyway, this bug is definitely not "general", it is debian-policy.
Please change it.
