There might be actual precedent from the debian-ports.org
“unreleased” suite… although I don’t know if people have
ever reported any bugs against packages from there to the
BTS (as opposed to, say, the architecture porters).

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
