OK, I get your point, and I never meant not to binNMU is a reasonable idea.

The reason for RC severity is just to prevent the version from
migrating to testing before I've sorted out the M-A mess as much as
possible on my side - for example #671902. Also, there is no important
user-sensible changes (package maintainers and users) in this version,
but mostly improvements to maintainability.

Sure, I'll get the final version into archive before freeze,
regardless whether there are remaining odd bits of M-A as long as they
aren't affecting normal users.
