You are implying the other DDs are your ressource for finding
what you are calling "trivial bugs". They are not. It's your
duty to think of most of it beforehand.
If you didn't want to imply that: Which ressources do you have?
Why did you not already use them?

Straight question, straight answer:
Did you think about system.map at all?

It's not our duty to explain why we want feature A or B.
If your are going to provide a new style of packaging something,
it's your duty do do it at least as well as the old style
and to preserve ALL features, no matter how useful you
find them personally.

That's too late for thoughts.
You are telling us:
I'll throw this package in Debian,
I don't care about features I don't use,
if anybody does, he should file a bug report.
That's not what I'd call thorough working.

YOU are the one who should look for bugs (on purpose!) before.
All those people do this to help you seeing the difficulties
in your project. It's meant to help you.
