I don't think that's the right approach.

One purpose of marking things as release blockers is to encourage
people to work on them. The list is not set in stone. I expect that
close to the release, some will remain unfixed and will be
intentionally ignored/unblocked. The decision about what to mark as a
blocker shouldn't be based on manpower (at this stage), it should be
based on what the ideal 25.1 should look like.

You don't need to suggest it, please just do it.
It would be great if the list of blocking bugs became something other
than just my own opinion.
