I agree. That's a bug which should be fixed. A maintainer should know
before uploading whether an upload will cause an override disparity.
It is, however, probably possible to query that information from the
archive automatically during package build. Maybe even a lintian check
doing so is possible (but that would be a lintian check sending out
web queries during checking, which is probably new behavior).

This is most probably an reaction to your upload of 2005-10-13 which
nicely shows the issue that Matthias is complaining about.
