[Resolvconf-devel] What to do about piuparts errors?

At http://packages.qa.debian.org/resolvconf.html is reported under "problems":
Piuparts found an (un)installation error in the Sid
version of this package. You should fix it; have
a look at the corresponding piuparts log.
The log says:
resolvconf piuparts-result: failed-testing 1.53
with these errors:
dependency lsb-base is essential-required
dependency initscripts is essential-required
dependency debconf is essential-required
Can someone please tell me what should be done about this,
The complaint about resolvconf's dependency on initscripts
seems spurious. The dependency is versioned. Resolvconf 1.54
requires initscripts 2.88dsf-13.6 or later.
Resolvconf's dependency on debconf is also versioned, so
perhaps this message is also spurious.
Resolvconf's dependency on lsb-base is not versioned. I know
that it's improper to depend upon an Essential: yes package,
but lsb-base is not Essential: yes. Lsb-base is, however,
Priority: required. But I couldn't find anything in policy which
says it is an error to depend upon a Priority: required package.
What's wisdom here?
