It's not possible to express the full set of relations in a single
winner vote, as far as I can tell.  It might be someone's vote to say
'none of this non-free crap in the archive ever' and simultaneously
say 'but the release team does have the authority to downgrade these bug
reports if they need to'.  Unless I've missed something and we're
planning on having a multi winner vote,
