There's this text in section §9.2.1:
Packages other than "base-passwd" must not modify "/etc/passwd",
"/etc/shadow", "/etc/group" or "/etc/gshadow".
It's not clear to me, whether this refers to the packaging or any
program provided by that package. Depending on the reading this
would make the passwd package buggy. So it might be worth clarifying
probably by adding "passwd" to the exception.
