I think I can schedule binNMUs now though the buildds have to have proc
mounted beforehand or the one signing has to be careful enough not to
sign if it's not yet fixed with the binNMU.

So I guess that's up to the Security Team to decide.

You do check for a mounted proc in the unstable/testing/experimental
version, right? I kind of remember seeing it as the check fails even if
there is a proc mounted from outside the chroot...
