        There is no policy 7.1.1:
|      7.        Declaring relationships between packages
|      7.1.      Syntax of relationship fields
|      7.2.      Binary Dependencies - `Depends', `Recommends', `Suggests',
|                `Enhances', `Pre-Depends'

        If you mean developers reference, it is chock full of things
 that are  style issues, or just plain wrong, in my opinion. This bit
 about why filing bugs on policy violations that lintian has been
 warning the maintainer about for ages is one of them.
