Okay.  My thought is that it's cleaner to state this GR is about the project position on policy and not about the Release Team's execution of its delegated authority if we stay away from the RC terminology.

We may all know what we mean now, but GRs seem to get referenced for a very long time.  I think it's worth it for 15 years from now Debian to be as clean and clear as we can now.
