Lintian is great in the same way as a dictionary: supports you with 
specific facts, but is never complete - you need to think for yourself 
anyway, and ideally all lintian warnings should only be reminders for 
you on things you already knew but just accidentally missed.

...In reality I guess noone knows all of the lintian facts by heart, but 
I still find it slightly worrysome if what you say is that you rely on 
lintian to "cover your ass" in packaging. :-)
