How does it become less of an exception if we decide now or later? The
decision to handle it differently would need to be made either way.

Anyway, as you, quite correctly, observed, the restrictions of a freeze
are less strict on packages that have no r-deps and no users (like
vaporware). I would propose a simple agreement: You will be able to
update netconf after lenny was frozen, but will need to fix any upcoming
release critical issues in less than a week. If you fail to do so,
netconf will be removed and not allowed back in.
