So, what's the status of this proposal?

Quickly checking the discussion archive (which I've linked from the wiki
page) it seems to me that there was consensus about the proposal. I
guess the next 2 steps would then be:
- discuss a policy change on -policy
- implement a lintian check (a warning for the moment or even less)
  which points maintainers to the above wiki page and invite them to
  implement the format in their debian/copyrights

Anything else?
