Could lintian warn when a date based version is used?

Lintian already does this - see [0].

Given than epochs are kind of a big deal, maybe that warning could be raised to the level of error (or added to ftp-master's autoreject tags), so that a package will be accepted only if that tag is explicitly overridden.
