Lintian doesn't do cross-package checks by design, since one of the goals
of Lintian is that if the same version of Lintian is run on the same
package, it will produce the exact same results as last time. It also is
designed not to depend on any external resources that may or may not be
available, such as apt-file lists for unstable (note that lintian.d.o runs
on a stable system).
