Fair enough, but this is not in contrast with the RC bugs +
usertag-ing proposal. Actually, such a proposal will be exactly in the
spirit of the QA team suggesting the removal to the release team, by
the mean of RC bugs.

Also, you will get the added "benefit" of starting inhibit, starting
from today, testing migrations for orphaned packages (which in turn
has the possibility of increasing the interest of maintainers of
reverse-dependencies in adopting orphaned packages).
