Oh, please, not more fields... :)

If a distinct Format: URL is deemed necessary for the revisions from now
until integration into the debian-policy package, then let's have that.
I would rather avoid it, though, since then the examples need to be
updated every time, and I'm lazy.

(Once in debian-policy, the Format: URL will have a version number, so
the problem will be solved.)

I have no idea when the debian-policy integration will happen, but I
hope soon -- at least in terms of the number of revisions of DEP5 we
produce until then.
