For system administrators to know the open bugs in the packages is very important to know whether to install or not. Would be a good feature!

Description-en: tool which lists critical bugs before each APT installation
apt-listbugs is a tool which retrieves bug reports from the Debian Bug
Tracking System and lists them. Especially, it is intended to be invoked
before each installation/upgrade by APT in order to check whether the
installation/upgrade is safe.
Many developers and users prefer the unstable version of Debian for its new
features and packages. APT, the usual upgrade tool, can break your system by
installing a buggy package.
apt-listbugs lists critical bug reports from the Debian Bug Tracking System.
Run it from within the APT session, in order to see whether an installation
or upgrade is known to be unsafe.
