I guess I'm completely failing to communicate.

udebs are already documented very clearly.  There is _no point_ in
policy replicating that.  Policy is meant to help multiple people
cooperate to make the Debian system work in a consistent way ---
adding some docs about udebs would not help that at all.

All I said is that the text in #697433 seems to (unintentionally, I
hope) imply that packages with "Package-type: udeb" are an example of
the packages that policy defines.  I suggested a way to fix that ---
just link to the d-i docs.  I see no downside to that.

Yet I'm getting a lot of resistance to the suggestion.  Why?  What am
I missing?
