At the risk of stating the obvious: testing migration, release-critical
bug monitoring, removals from testing, removals from unstable, etc. all
operate at the level of source packages, not binary packages. A source
package is either suitable for inclusion in stable or it isn't; it is
not possible to include half a source package in stable.

If the client is useful and usable, but the server is RC-buggy, one
possible route would be to stop building the server-related binary
packages until they can be fixed, so that every remaining binary package
is non-RC-buggy.
