I'd hope there is better communcation between dpkg and apt
developers that this is merely a rhetorical question.

debian-devel is named devel for a reason. And in cases like
this, it is not unknown for people in related areas (dinstall
maintainer, dpkg maintainers, apt/aptitude/deity folks, and the web
master) use email to reach a rough consensus.
I am not sure all the people who ought to wiegh in on this
even read -policy.
If we all work together, we can totally disrupt the system.
