What about adding a 'data' section, parallel to 'libs', which deborphan also
lists by default?

It wouldn't solve every case, but it certainly seems like a good place to file
*-data packages.

I think requiring a program to be installed to keep a data package installed is
daft. If I pick a hypothetical example, if we required a dictionary to be
installed at the same time as edict, then edict couldn't be used by local
scripts without dragging in unused dictionary software.
