Except that debtags are right now for binary packages, whereas
copyright is for source packages.

Moreover, copyright is something already coded (and correctly "fixed")
in debian/copyright.

The solution to your problem already exists (actually, it has been
*designed* for that): http://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/CopyrightFormat
, it "just" needs someone with the energy of finalizing the proposal
(most likely via a DEP), so that is stops being an ever changing wiki

Debtags is super-cool, but it is not the answer to everything.
