Once libconfig-model-dpkg-perl/experimental is installed on your system,  'cme 
check dpkg' checks the contents of all lintian-overrides files and warn about 
unknown tags.

The command 'cme fix dpkg' replaces obsolete tags with new tag names.

No other check is done on lintian-overrides files.

I could also provide a cme command that would check only overrides files *only* 
(i.e. 'cme fix lintian-overrides' would not touch all the other package files). 
This could be useful as a lintian-brush script.

Is this something Debian people would be interested in ?

All the best
