That's a nice idea, indeed.

If you are into the debhelper team or know anyone inside it, let them
know advertising their new major mode of operation would have been a
nice idea. People can't just read their minds and discover it. I myself
was astonished seeing its existance several months ago while reading the
man page.

Beside swapping to level 5 itself, it seems only debug package
management is affected, seems easy to fix. If Nohar or myself find some
spare time, we could make a small patch for it.
