Bug#536364: RFC: Make some results non overridable

Package: lintian
Severity: wishlist

Quoting http://blog.technologeek.org/2009/07/09/227:
   How to not use lintian overrides

   Look what just got added to all the packages maintained by the
   Debian Forensics team:

   --- md5deep-3.4.orig/debian/source.lintian-overrides
   +++ md5deep-3.4/debian/source.lintian-overrides
   @@ -0,0 +1,3 @@
   +# Avoid warnings if non-uploaders to uploads.
   +md5deep source: changelog-should-mention-nmu
   +md5deep source: source-nmu-has-incorrect-version-number

   You’re doing it wrong.

Reading this, i'm wondering if some lintian results shouldn't be made

What do you think?
