Yes; furthermore, given that we have to manually approve any uploads through
the 'unapproved' queue anyway, if it's a fix that we know up front that we
want on the CDs and it doesn't cause archive uninstallabilities, it would be
more straightforward to just have these packages uploaded to the release
pocket instead of incurring the overhead of pocket copies.

The flipside is that we don't want to be having to bounce lots of packages
back out of -release and ask people to reupload to -proposed.  So maybe this
could be done as, "no uploads to the release pocket without prior sign-off"?
