Dear Sam,

Nice proposal !

Here are two comments which I hope can help to enhance it:

 - To be really accurate about the copyright of the packaging work, it
   should also mention the patches in the diff.gz which are applied on
   the main sources.

 - One drawback of the greedy approach for organising the Files fields
   is that the most important copyright - the one of the programs which
   gives to the package its raison d'être - will never be at the top of
   the list.

Have a nice day,
