I really don't know if I'll be able to make the time to look at them, but:

At first thought I think I would use libfoo5-dbg, but I remember that ¿Pino? 
told me some rationale behind preferring libfoo-dbg that made me do the switch 
in libqjson. I think it was similar to the -dev one, but I can't tell it for

The last one.

If it's applicable, I don't see why not.

If I would be looking for attica I would expect the source name to start with 
attica. So I would prefer attica-kf5 as source name.

And I think I'll go with phonon-qt5 for source name instead of mangling the 
rules files that much. If the source has a bug, I prefer to push two sources 
than needing to mangle error-prone rules files.

Thanks a lot for your effort!
