The problem is that the cdd-dev framework provides a common template for
a control file which might lead to completely different binary target
packages (for instance: med-bio, med-imaging, med-tools, ...  for Debian-Med
but jr-toys, jr-art, ... etc for Debian-Junior).  So it is either impossible
to insert the Binaries in advance or we have to find a completely different
way to build these meta packages which would reduce the flexibility we
wanted to gain.
