I think you should keep fakeroot a general purpose tool, and not make it 
responsible for enforcing policy. We have tools like deblint that can check 
for policy violations. Fakeroot may well have uses not related to building 
debian packages, and for it to become a more general-purpose tool, it 
shouldn't contain debian policy rules in it.
