There's no grace period for a package which has been determined to be in
violation of our admittedly spur of the moment rules. Grace periods
exist only for the specific category of packages requests for orphaning
a package, since the current maintainer (usually) deserves the right to
justify their continued maintenance. And even that, we can resolve early.

I don't understand why, once we've decided such a name is too confusing,

We may make unilateral decisions whenever we want, subject only to
internal review by fellow team members. Unilateral decisions aren't a

regular users don't get a vote. There is no point in waiting.
