I think in the version list %t could be the default because there it
doesn't have the package name so more space is available. Also:


There are some possibilities for mitigating the concerns you raised:

Merge <foo> and <foo>-debug into one suite name for origin Debian.

Do not show the value of %t when apt only knows about one suite.

Make %t a low priority field, so it is only shown when there is enough
space in the line after showing all of the other fields.
