Then split'em up and use on demand. For instance, use one shell alias for
'must fix these', when done use another one for 'pedantic' mode, if you like
to, which should be enough to demask lintian reports.
I think that experimenting with experimental/pedantic and eventually report
results to BTS could help lintian developers to evaluate some information in
advance about future infiltration and impact of these experimental checks, how
useful, robust, or eventually boring they are, so they tweak the development
heading according to the 'wind conditions'.
