Personally, I don't see putting stuff in policy as removing lattitude. See
also http://bugs.debian.org/102213 .

Good advice on packaging issues is always helpful, and afaict, policy is
the best place for it. The developers-reference subject matter is broader
Debian issues beyond package contents (eg, mailing lists, how to upload,
when to NMU, etc); the packaging-manual used to be detailed low-level
documentation on what will be accepted by dpkg, rather than Debian.
