That can be done.

It is my understanding that Lintian is only run on source uploads (or
human uploads). So any upload from buildds should be ignored, but I
suggest we get that confirmed with the ftp-masters if we go with that.
We can (also?) ask the ftp-masters to do a "non-fatal" autoreject for
that tag at that point (that would allow people NMUing packages to
ignore it by overriding it). Not sure if that has any merrit though.
