The BTS has nothing to do with deciding whether particular bugs are
release critical or not. We indicate to other tools (like britney) the
set of bugs which are RC and the packages that they affect.

Whether we decide to release with bugs of serverity >= serious in
 pseudopackages is a decision for the release managers, and the
information for them to make that decision can be made available to
them if it is not already available.

debian-policy is not a pseudo package. It's a real package that is
released with Debian.

The documentation describing what to do if you don't know what package
to file a bug against is correct, though patches to make it clearer
are certainly acceptable.
