Most of them are easy to find by searching extended descriptions.  An
"apt-cache search changelog" on unstable gives only 11 matches, one of which
is apt-listchanges.

There are currently over 500 Debian-native packages in unstable, and
probably somewhere around 25-50% of these are Debian-specific utilities.  It
might be a useful project to investigate these and create an index of them.
