Then there are a lot of broken maintainer scripts around. Furthermore,
this doesn't work with dynamically added user ids. And, Policy tells
in http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files.html#s10.9.1 how
to call dpkg-statoverride in maintainer scripts (though this section
is according to itself not part of policy).
