Yes, I think most developers has no strong objections - please go

From the point of view as debian-glibc maintainer, Daniel Jacobowitz
already set up linux-kernel-headers package for experimental, which is
replaced kernel headers file (ex: /usr/include/linux) in libc6-dev.
This new nptl aware libc6-dev will be unstable in (near?) future.  I
think debian-glibc linux-kernel-headers package can cooperate under
this kind of lists.
