Well libc6-dbg is not a standard dbgsym package:
- It is a dependency for other packages
- It is a build-dependency for other source packages
- It is not an automatic debug package (ie using debhelper) as we need
  to strip libpthread.so and crt*.o differently. This means that the
  resulting package do not have the same properties.
