We encourage our packagers to implement useful check-sections.

To make an example, I'm packaging the python-django framework. I'd like
get python-django's check-section get executed (using a django
installation) when python is updated. Or to get some django-requiring
packages get checked, when django is updated. I'd like to catch not only
API/ABI bumps, but also changed/broken behaviour, produced somewhere else.

Most of required description is already there, so it can't be to hard,
to execute those tests from check-section.
