Also correct, at least in theory. We noticed this shortly after the
upload despite we never actually ran into that issue nor did anyone
report such issues.
We'll nevertheless add these restrictions with the next upload.
I've allowed myself to retitle this bug report towards that issue
since the original one is a non-issue.
I've set the severity only to important since this so far had no
real-life impact. Feel free to bump the severity to serious iff this
caused upgrade troubles for you.
