I don't hold a view on whether we want lz support in dpkg/dak, but it
could be a pity if we really involve CTTE for such an issue. To me,
it's sorta abusing the escalation process if every individual
developer raise an issue and seek for overruling when his opinion were
n'acked by the maintainer of relevant part... But this is just my own,
secret, POV, please don't start a flame war for it.
