I had a look at Klee's sources.  They're poorly documented and they
do too much to be relevant to this policy amendment.  But the ideas
are interesting, so I'll see if I can figure the sources out and do
something about them ;-) Is it orphaned by Klee, ie. are we looking for
a new upstream developer or...?

IMHO you should not delay adding the patch to dpkg-dev.  Klee's source
format is not relevant to this amendment.
