Fully agree with this; as long as there's something "coherent" with the 
majority of ther packages in Debian, that's fine.

Another (minor) disadvantage of changing "non-named" entries to "named" ones 
is reindenting the entries: not for the "hassle" of doing that, but also for 
the slightly "tampering" of the VCS "blame" feature.

My vote would go to this...

... but this proposal is basically b), just done manually, so +1 on this, too.
And, as long as a dch-like format is used, this should not be incompatible 
with b), I think.

We are a team, so let's act as team! :)
