Unless scripts touch .diff.gz directly, there should not be much difference. 
Actually, there is only one difference important to us: after `dpkg-source -x 
*.dsc`, all patches in debian/patches will be applied by dpkg-source already, 
and when doing `dpkg-source -b`, all patches must be applied to the extracted 
source tree (or dpkg-source will autopush them). Everything else are only 
technical details. 

We neither ship debian specific binary files nor any non "series" inline 
patches so those features of v3 are not very important for us.

However, as you want to try 3.0 (quilt) with smaller packages first, we will 
probably get back to it some time later (maybe for late 4.4 dev packages as 
George suggests). On the other hand, orig.tar.bz2 (including snapshot tarballs 
if we do any) is effective immediately (for 4.3.3 and up) by common agreement.
