You are talking about freaking lot of metadata here, and about changing some
key stuff to get --rsyncable compression.
I may not understand why most apt metadata in .gz (Packages, Sources,
Contents...) is not made --rsyncable, but I am quite sure the chances of
anyone doing official changes to dpkg to use --rsyncable right now are nil.
