We won't remove packages from a pocket because of this, but we could 
limit the manual check to a small list (of which checking the version 
number would be one).  While we can't yet remove packages from pockets 
when they have been accepted, it's certainly possible to reject packages 
from the unapproved queue.

This might be a problem, but this could be worked around by removing 
packages from -proposed after a month (or so).  This would require 
fixing the "remove packages from non-release pockets", but fixing that 
should be relatively easy.
