If all you want is a page on the Wiki for you and notional other people
who are interested in excluding certain packages from their spins or
whatever to co-ordinate on listing which packages might be an issue,
then I don't think anyone would really object to that - all along we've
been saying that it's fine for you to include or exclude whatever you
like from your own spin on whatever grounds you choose, and this would
just be a bit of organization to help you with that. I certainly
wouldn't object to it.

However, you haven't proposed it as that; you seem to have proposed it
as a packaging guideline. All packagers are supposed to respect
packaging guidelines (we only don't call them 'rules' because we're
trying to be all happy-clappy). If you really want this to be something
that packagers don't have to worry about unless they actually care about
it, then it shouldn't be a packaging guideline. You should just create
it as a page on the Wiki with no official status in any procedure. I
don't believe you need anyone's permission to do that, you can just go
ahead and do it.
