A package that should be kept out of the release has a serious bug.  That
bug needs to be filed against *that package*, so that the testing scripts
can handle the package appropriately.  Requesting the package's removal from
unstable is a separate (and lower severity) issue.

It's not, though it ought to be added to the developer's reference.
