even with an extension of the automatic check you could not be sure to have
caught all issues because any extension on top of the existing checks would
only be a heuristic and will thus miss some cases.

The fix for this would be to have a declarative way to express those trigger
activations which are currently done in maintainer scripts so that it is not
needed to try to "parse" maintainer scripts with a regex.
