But this does not quite work; I quickly looked at the code and it seems that "opam lint" is meant to be run purely locally, it does not have access to a base of packages available in the repository.

opam lint is automatically run by camelus when you do a PR to the OCaml OPAM repository so it would be useful for the maintainers (and to the package submitter aswell).
