dfsg bit in the package name

Hi Mentors,

Is there any preference/reasoning for using any particular symbol that
joins "dfsg" bit with the package name? I can see that different
packages use a different format, here are some quick stats from packages
in unstable (with the counts):
   1179 +dfsg
   1119 .dfsg
    233 ~dfsg
    201 -dfsg

Should I use "+" or "."? Should that be somehow standardized or
mentioned in the faq? Or do you reckon that it doesn't make any
difference at all and should be left up to maintainers?
