I really have no intuition for in how many cases the data will be 
incorrect. However, if users find that the data is incorrect for 
specific package, they ought to complain to the maintainer.

-1 sounds much better than vetoing it :-) Taking the votes together,
I currently arrive at

Tarek -1
Michael -1 (?)
Jannis -1 (?)

Jim +1
Thomas +1

Any other opinions?
