The thing is that just like Russ said, almost no one uploads new versions to
experimental first just for the sake of it being a new version. There are
of course some cases that's desired (e.g. major changes), but that's not
the common rule.
And adding extra enable-on-demand checks IMHO is not something that belongs
to lintian. But I'll better let the lintian maintainers speak for
I just wanted to suggest another possible way to achieve the same goal, with
higher (IMHO) chances to get added.
