If I read these correctly, this is exactly the kind of action that a maintainer can take to make the release process smoother. If *you* as a maintainer think the bug shouldn't be RC, by all means downgrade it (ideally with an explanation just in case it's disputed later on). The Release Team doesn't *want* to go over all RC bugs and decide to ignore them, we don't have the intimate knowledge of your package to judge and it takes time to build up enough knowledge to make the judgement call. If it's disputed, we can judge it (and raise severity if needed) later on with our Release Team member hat on, but the first call is on the maintainer.
