I wonder if it would work better just to mark the non-security patches?

How on earth would our gracious editor (or anybody else for that matter) make sure the fix has *no* security implications?
Besides, this being the patches vetted for inclusion in -stable, it stands to reason that most (all?) are potentially very serious (that is not the same as "all-around security relevant")

How is "leave off the not-sensitive mark" different from what goes on today? Just to be on the safe side, as a developer/integrator I'd leave it off always... and as a consumer I'd presume all patches in -stable are potentially security sensitive, just like today.
