Sounds sensible to me.

Debian in general has no rules against above described packaging style.

The purpose of rules/guidelines specifically for this team is to avoid 
making collaboration too hard.

I am unaware if this team disallow/discourage above described packaging 
style in particular - seems to me to be an elegant _extension_ to our 
common style.

Not sure I understand what you mean here.

As long as you do that syncing yourself, not expect others to do it (or 
require jumping through special hoops to preserve syncability), I see no 
problem with that.

Yes, membership of this team implies write access to the git area for 
this team.

I suspect this issue really isn't about ongoing packaging style, but 
misunderstanding about how to bootstrap: I suggest you setup the gits 
for "your" packages yourself at the pkg-multimedia area of Alioth - then 
you can yourself try ensure that it is syncable with github.

Beware, though, that gits at Alioth has some hooks attached so as to 
report to our IRC channel and commit list.  Make sure, if you do not use 
the provided script, that you manually setup the gits properly.
