(I interpreted your "unless we explicitly say so" to be at odds with
my remark where I suggest we do exactly that... but no matter!)

For the packages with a huge number of outstanding CVEs I think could
be convinced... But perhaps simply writing to debian-lts is enough?

I'm easy really, and not against seeing data/dla-needed.txt being used
"early" and will switch to that if you think that would be more useful
for these larger packages; I am on smaller ones right now so not
exposed in a true practical sense to the issue. :)

Best wishes
