It is new to me - I had seen it before but you guys made me reflect on it and have now made CDBS do it by default. In other words: I love it!

I do not like long indentations, though. I propose that we recommend wrapping with comma+newline+one-single-space.

I prefer the long indentations to have all items below the first one. This make the affiliation more visible, because of the different width of the indentation.

The convention documented in Debian Policy §7.1 is "single space after each comma" and "wrapping [...] after a comma and before the space following that comma."

This is in line with other more restrictive file formats (§5.6.13, §5.6.21), which mandates single-space indentation.
