While reducing the number of libraries we have to ship with sarge is a good
thing, the "RC" bugs you describe above would only apply to unstable, not to
testing, because the old packages would not be removed from testing until
all packages depending on them were fixed.  NMUs are still fine for such
issues, but they would not be regarded as release-critical for sarge in the
absence of other compelling factors.
