Can the DEBIAN and SPECS subdirectories be unified? How about BIGJUJU?

The DEBIAN and and SPECS sub directories perform very similar and
possibly identical functions among .deb and .rpm package managers. For
the sake of saving developer time and make the two systems more
compatible can a common name for these be agreed upon like for example
PACK? Failing that how about BIGJUJU? A SOURCES subdirectory for .deb
would also be advantageous. Between the two changes a higher degree of
conceptual and actual similarity can be achieved.

Can't we all get along?
