I think it makes sense. Currently most information that comes to my mind
for this facet is derived from other sources (like the  nativ or
orphaned information). 
Examples I have in mind:
      * debian::priority:{optional,...}
      * debian::arch:{i386,ia64,...}, or perhaps better
      * debian::no-arch:{i386,ia64,...}
Generally it is probably less a new, more some package properties based
on existing information (which makes tagging fairly easy :-). We could
have debian::policy (for policy related stuff) and such, but I don't
think this makes much sense, since we do have a suite::debian and
devel::debian which should be fine grained enough.

Best regards
