It is only a small thing but I did not realise DEP-3 was still a
candidate or I would have spoken earlier. A CVE field, mandatory if a CVE has been published for this patch and is the major component of this
patch, would allow easy tracing of patches back to CVE publications
later (for review perhaps, or by other distributions).

Then it would be better to make it independant from CVE, since they
are not the only security vulnerability database.

Ack; but we (in the security team) only track CVE really. The Debian bug number is useful but only within Debian, the CVE identifier is cross-distribution.
