To help handling such situations, maybe "negative distrib tags" would be
useful.  That is, tags like "not-woody", which would be mutually exclusive
with their obvious counterpart.  The meaning of their presence would be
obvious, and their absence would mean "not evaluated for this distrib".

In this case, the Version field would be used to possibly set an initial
positive tag.  An upload to any dist would set "not-<dist>", possibly
clearing the counterpart.
