Package: ocaml
Severity: important

As also partly discussed in #69724, ocaml-compiled binaries cannot be
stripped without becoming useless.

I don't know how exactly this comes, but IMHO, stripping a binary should
not render it useless, so I guess OCaml is wrongly using some optional,
discardable section, like those intended for debugging information, to
store essential data. Some ELF format wizard would probably be better at
explaining this / nailing this down.
