I grant that this is a better solution, but it's not clear to me why
it's "serious".  Policy doesn't have any such rule at present.
(Though, indeed, I would supporting adding such a rule.)

Or, another way to put it is: This is a QA package, it would be very
helpful if all Debian developers would help by submitting patches for
RC bugs in it.  Especially if there isn't a really solid case for the
bug being RC in the first place. :)
