Hi Dagobert--

I think you're saying "as a distro that builds from debian"; is that right?

Nothing in the currently-discussed design prohibits a distro from doing
this; they would just want to configure their tools to read the updated
public suffix list effective_tld_names.dat file regularly.

However, i see the public suffix list as very similar in form to tzdata,
clamav and other packages that are part of stable-updates (a few
releases ago, this special part of debian was known as "volatile").  I
hope downstream distros take advantage of this offering from debian, and
i intend to get publicsuffix (and libpsl, if it works out sensibly, as
it looks like it will) into stable-updates for the future.

If you still have concerns about this approach, i'd be happy to hear
them, of course.  i want to make sure this approach works well for other
distros as well as end users of debian itself.
