Update debian/copyright as per DEP-5 spec.
Above line is superfluous with most recent drafts of DEP5.

Above does not comply with newest drafts of DEP5: the file string needs to be usable with find. Prepend "./" and it is good.

Above is not "GPL-2" but "GPL-2+". The trailing "+" is part of the license string, not a separate controlling hint.

Interesting approach. I tend to just put upstream licensing string and own additional comments together, as it isn't really "verbatim" anyway due to indentation changes and possibly wrapping. I might reconsider.
Those reading this and *not* abandoning CDBS (as was done here) might be interested in doing a "touch debian/copyright_hints" to enable automated DEP5-based copyright check at build time. That hint file is useful also as basis for transitions of the copyright file to new DEP5 format.
