I agree with Manoj on this.  task packages exist potato and woody.  That means
we have to support an upgrade path from potato to woody(and beyond!).  There
can not be an abrupt change.  That goes against one of debian's main features,

We are too close to freeze, to have this implemented right, no matter HOW
simple the code is.  We can maybe support both, with the new way not being in
it's final form.  It's final form will most likely be adopted sometime in
woody+1, with the form in woody probably being close to this.

Policy should document this final woody form, and then be modified when the
final form comes in to play in woody+1.  However, what we have so far, is
policy being modified to document the pre-implementation code, not what has
already been in use.
