What do we do now? Afaik, if someone tries to add a hopelessly bad
package,, we delete the page, but the page still exists showing the
reason it was deleted. I think that works good to let people know. It
also makes the anti-features page simpler and clearer for people to
understand if it's for pages which still meet our guidelines, and can
still be useful, but want to warn people about.
