Interestingly, that's actually enforced by dak! :)

daklib/queue.py has:
| def check_valid(overrides, session):
|     """Check if section and priority for new overrides exist in database.
|     Additionally does sanity checks:
|       - debian-installer packages have to be udeb (or source)
|       - non debian-installer packages cannot be udeb
