This is one of the changes in the Ubuntu package.

Personally for me I prefer d-i, as it allows producing stand-alone
packages, which better fit my use case. As long as this is not broken, I
have no objection.

One annoying aspect of dkms is that there's a template that needs to be
created. It is possible to create it manually. But it is annoying for a
package with so many modules such as DAHDI (and some are added on
patching). Automating it would be a bonus.
