At least [easy, hint, remove, block, block-udeb] either can't do harm
and/or can be easily reverted.  (In theory getting a package back into
testing that was gracefully removed should be doable, but yes, there
are cases where it might be hard because other packages got in
instead.)  For [unblock, unblock-udeb, approve] that's not true
because you can't get back in time once they're in.  But it's
necessary during freeze times to have all manpower available reviewing
packages, I guess that's why they're in the set.

(Not doing any judgement on how it should be.)
