You often refer to the inclusion of Invariant Sections as a mere
packaging issue. To us, a packaging issue is how software gets packed
to distribution and installation on someone's system and has little to
do with the content that gets installed (e.g. Invariant Section are
content, not packaging).
We are talking about two different kinds of packaging. When I speak
of a "packaging requirement" I'm talking about a requirement that
applies to the form of a program or other work, but not the substance.
This a different kind of packaging from the making of Debian packages
containing the programs and other works.
I'm sorry if this matter of terminology caused any confusion.
