Doko demoted those that directly pulled in the component mismatches shown
in excuses - that resolved proposed-migration.
It also let the 18.11 binaries vanish as expected.
And that unblocked elfutils, systemd, openvswitch and ovn who were blocked
by dpdk.
Thanks Doko!

But there are still a bunch of binaries left in that list which can be
demoted to universe by an Archive Admin.
The list shown in [1] seems correct to me, demoting those binaries of
src:dpdk would help to complete the DPDK efforts for 20.04.
