Bug#61308: [PROPOSAL] Initializing databases by using conffiles.

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

The following proposal tries to address cases like Bug #34294.

Do not initialize a text database by using the conffile mechanism.

Rationale: We should try to reduce prompting to a minimum during upgrades.
99,999% users will always say "No" to dpkg prompt. In this case it is 
better not to prompt and assume that "No" is what almost everybody

I'm looking for seconds for this proposal.
