Bug#203728: debian-policy: please add virtual package myspell-dictionary

Package: debian-policy
Version: 3.6.0
Severity: wishlist

virtual-package-list.txt.gz says:

"1. Post to debian-devel saying what names you intend to use or what
    other changes you wish to make, and file a wish list bug against the
    package debian-policy."

Here it is :)

[ sorry for the duplicate, I misread the list as I should mail -devel
and -policy and not mail -devel and _file a bug_ against the debian-policy
package... ]

The new policy for the former openoffice.org-spellcheck-* packages
(included in the "Debian Spelling Dictionaries and Tools Policy")
has written in it that they should provide myspell-dictionary
and myspell-dictionary-* (that's a special exception for
the openoffice.org-l10n-* packages to suggests an matching dictionary)
and openoffice.org / mozilla-spellchecker[1] / ... should
suggest/recommend/... myspell-dictionary.

I think that is just a logical approach seeing that we already
have aspell-dictionary and ispell-dictionary...
