I agree, but it's probably inevitable because Steve Langasek made
this a compound proposal, mixing issues, and there are many different
combinations which would resolve it.  Also, our voting is clone-proof,
so hopefully it won't damage the chances of finding the best possible
solution.  Even so, this option is quite different to the others so far.

I mean packages with a Section: control field of non-free/admin.  Even if
it's mostly obsolete, ftpmasters and others are still regulating it, yes?

Hope that's sufficient clarification.  Would you second it whether or not I
drop the word 'vital' from it?

Not 100% sure what you mean, but I think this has changed recently and I hope
it's not set in stone.
