Could you implement something that does this so we can assess
whether it's reasonable for the current workflow? Note that I am
sceptical and think that the effort is too much for Debian
maintainers and may lead to (more) negligence of packages... so
don't implement it unless you're sure that this is a viable idea wrt
the way Debian works.
