http://wiki.debian.org/Debtags/FAQ states that new packages get tagged
automatically. Otherwise i could not imagine why there are so many valid
implemented-in or ui-toolkit tags.
If not i believe the system could/should guess tags by looking at file
extensions or dependencies.

I have filed two bug reports and probably we should discuss things from
now on right there. #708774 has been closed thus i have forwarded it to
Enrico directly.



One idea is about to warn maintainers about missing debtags, the other
one is to allow them to confirm or request help for new debtags.
