Quite a while ago I started working to make it possible to enable
NotAutomatic (as for -backports) for the proposed pocket.

Clearly, despite my comment saying that I'd finish implementing this, I
never did. There would be some other work needed too before it could be
enabled, like getting buildds to ignore the flag. It still seems to me
that this is the right thing to do. If anyone wants to pick it up and
push it over the line then please do.
