I wrote "release-goal for Jessie+1", not "release-critical bug".
That's a completely different thing.

Please read https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities,
https://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals and
https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-binary.html#s3.8 before
trying to continue this discussion.

About removing bash from the list of Essential packages, please have a
look at https://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/RemoveBashFromEssential
which lists what at least needs to be fixed before we can proceed.
