Hmm, while these are clearly RC issues (from my purely
no-release-team-member PoV), I would doubt that these
necessarily are issues in the package itself (a actual
list would help...). E.g. issues that are only caused by the
build dependency not migrating to testing might be better
filed against release.debian.org (and only be reassigned
if it has been verified that it actually would be better
to change the package than migrating the build-dependency)
