It was specifically avoided in CDBS to ease backporting.

Using new python install helper cripples backportability as well.

If you ever find a definitive answer then please let me know.  I believe 
no answer to that is definitive, as it involves multiple opinions.

I do not see it as a warning but a question: Did you forget to include 
the ...=deb option?

deliberately avoided that option and instead (thanks to CDBS) carefully 
applied other options effectively causing same results to ease
