I disagree - my packages are in source format 1, I should *not* have to
do *anything* to them to say that and if Lintian warns me about them
being in sf1 and not saying so then that is a bug in Lintian.
It should *never* be a requirement of an existing system that it be
changed to state that it is such just because a newer system exists.
