This is overly exaggerated. The findlib package and shared stublibs are
not upstream features, and the package can still be used as a regular
library with third-party programs. This is at worst a violation of a
"should" in the OCaml packaging policy.

As said in [1], properly fixing this package would also mean renaming
the package, which escapes the scope of a freeze exception. I won't
partially fix this package to fit the release team's criteria, and the
issues raised here are not RC IMHO. However, I put in CC the Debian
OCaml Maintainers mailing-list in case someone wants to have a look.
