Bug#144593: thoughts about dpkg database

Package: dpkg
Severity: wishlist

This is not a real Bug, only some thoughts and I don't like to lose it.
And now it is in the bts.... :-)

dpkg sould build its database from several sources. Maybe it get the
generally tags from a debian ftp server (with only Package:, Version:,
all Depends, Recomments, ...

But the admin should have the possibility to add some extra Tags from
other sources, like  Homepage:, X-Tags, or Descriptions-LANG: 

If dpkg has this support, maybe we can patch APT to download this extra
Meta-Datas, with a souces.list file like this:
  deb    http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main
  extdeb http://people.debian.org/~user/debian-urls/ stable main
  extdeb http://server.localnet/debian-tags stable main
