During my time as a Technical Committe member, /usr-merge was the point we most came back to. And yes, the way the TC decisions were dodged or omitted by the dpkg maintainers was... quite depressing. However, my reply should only be read regarding what I believe should be done in the following ~month before the release. Of course, I don't see the situation as ideal, nor as something that should persist. I hope a _fixed_ dpkg is uploaded and becomes part of Bookworm's first point release. But, even if it were on the table (which is not AFAICT), I would (in a strictly personal capacity) oppose the TC requiring such a patch at this point.
