You're misunderstanding the term "release-critical". What it means is that
this bug must be fixed before that package can be released. Of course,
if we can't release without that package, then we can't release at all
until that bug's fixed, but there aren't that many packages we can't
release without.

The two serious bugs against glibc (130922, 131216) and the grave bug
against base-passwd (130735) fall squarely into the latter category,
as do bugs against the other base and standard packages; bugs against
most packages don't.
