Indeed, it's in yaml format, so I guess it should be easy to integrate
it in PTS/Tracker. Any takers?

Yes, despite Policy §2.5 uses a "must", I don't think we should
mass-change overrides.
IMO, these should be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Looking more at it, it seems there are a lot of packages requiring
dependencies which are extra:

$ grep -E "^\s{4}" override-disparity | cut -d" " -f6 | sort | uniq -c
   4789 extra
      8 important
    131 optional
     17 standard

Looking at the policy again, I think extra is (mis)used quite too often.
