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.
