+1 to a more abstract text - as long as the podling release is legally
sound (e.g. does not include material we can't distribute under ASF
license) we can still permit it, even if it's not according to policy.

However it would be a judgement per podling - if a podling has been
told for two releases for instance to fix their NOTICE, then a third
release might be downvoted (not blocked) for that reason. It could
also happen that an issue is not identified until later - so it's not
easy to write it down as strict rules - and I think we've the current
practice is about right. Some "just enough" formalizing of that
practice, as Roman proposes, will help keep it along those lines also
for the future.
