I wonder if it would be good idea to add some tests to lintian/linda
about it?

I often make similar mistakes...  I make package and often don't notice
that it was builded as native. But I always use linda/lintian stuff.

What about something like "debian/native" if package is native?
And then linda/lintian could comply if this file is absent, and package
is made as native.

I think this would be really easy and very helpful fix.
