Wording of debian/control handling in Debian Perl Group Policy

Hi Debian Perl Group :)

I noticed that we have a 'should' in the Debian Perl Group Policy
about the Maintainer field in debian/control. I think we always
required that packages maintained in the pkg-perl group repositories
have that fields actually set to
pkg-perl-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org .

Any objection if I commit the attached patch to the policy (changing
the should to a must requirement).
