shouldn't all this exclusion be documented somewhere, e.g. in debian/README.source?

Instead of above, I include the upstream-tarball.mk CDBS snippet, declare with DEB_UPSTREAM_REPACKAGE_EXCLUDES what to exclude, and the "debian/rules get-orig-source" then automagically repackages a DFSG-free tarball from the pristine tarball offered upstream.

And yes, in addition to that, I also mention the stripped parts in debian/copyright. I personally consider such note required, but recent discussions about DEP5 indicated that not all agree with that.

Whoops, I misread your question: You did not talk about debian/copyright but about debian/README.source.

Yes, see e.g. the README.source in the csound package.

wouldn't it be nice to have a short notice about how the sources got imported (if that was done in any non-standard way)?
and again: wouldn't README.source be the right place?

Not only "nice" - this is encouraged by Debian Policy.
