From the Debian Policy Manual §5.6.14 [1]:
"In a .changes file or parsed changelog output this contains the
(space-separated) name(s) of the distribution(s) where this version of the
package should be installed. Valid distributions are determined by the archive

So you could implement the following, without violating the Debian Policy:
bar (1.0-0ubuntu1) dapper hardy intrepid; urgency=low
