My point is simply:  As long as the released lintian does not find the
said issue - how can I file a sensible bug report the lintian authors
will consider an issue?  I totally welcome if you would file a more
qualified bug report with the insight you have proven in this thread to
make lintian authors understand the problem.

Kind regards
