No, I don't think such a thing belongs in the ‘control’ file. There is
significant pressure *against* adding fields to that file, since the
addition of such a field bloats the repository ‘Packages’ files.
Rather, it would be good to have a facility similar to the way the
Debian changelog is currently available: have the upstream changelog
published in a predictable location by package name.
A good project from someone with a lot of time on their hands, I guess.
