I suppose it is debtable, but the only spec we have for Debian
repositories suggests that the Origin is the origin of the repository
(Emdebian) rather than the origin of the packages in the repository
(Debian). Otherwise Ubuntu (IIRC 70% packages from Debian) could
arguably be Origin: Debian.

Excellent, I'm sure some users will appreciate that.

I also had another thought about the smaller Packages files in
Emdebian, what about some Packages files for each Debian Pure Blend
(or other tasks/metapackages - gnome etc)?
