it could parse the changelog entry and try to detect if the upload is
for stable-(security|proposed-updates). 

If not, and "APT prefers stable" (stolen from reportbug), lintian/linda
could give a warning. This requires lintian/linda to run in the same
enviroment than the package has been build (ie. a chroot).
