I've mentioned this several times now, I've something similar to that
alreadyd implemented locally. I just didn't include them in dpkg 1.16.5

  1) it could be perceived as forcing the proposal as a done deal.
  2) they could become unused cruft if the project rejected the
  3) depending on the amount of files to transition to meta-data,
