Note that uscan can do the repack automatically (with excluded files listed from debian/copyright). However, it only works if there is a tarball to download (so with git snapshots, this may be difficult, but maybe there is a creative way to do that). As for the matter, I have no strong opinion on this. Having the same convention for all packages would be nice, of course. -- Many pages make a thick book, except for pocket Bibles which are on very very thin paper.
