Sorry, I misparsed this sentence, or rather I was confused by Ian's
claim that there is no official policy procedure any more, but that
instead changes are made at the discretion of the respective package's
maintainer. I now assume that Ian's claim is wrong; consequently I
withdraw my statement that there's anything incorrect in your suggested
