[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#581265: why not in squeeze?

I do not see in the URL mentionned earlier why we shouldn't ship squeeze
with Chromium. It's a massively popular web browser which doesn't suffer
from the trademark issues Firefox and the Mozilla foundation spawned on
Debian (and now Fedora, btw).

If there are security concerns in Chromium, that should be made clearer
here. Furthermore, people from the security team didn't express explicit
objections against maintaining this package so I don't see that as a
valid argument:

 "We are already tracking[1] chromium security issues, this is another
 webkit fork and it is a real pain; but given the fact that now we have
 three members in the webkit security groups (Fathi is one of them),
 from the Security team's (CCed) point of view there is no objections."

Could this be clarified?
