Great work!  I think that having very up to date and high-quality and well-
maintained packages in every sense is very good for Debian's image in 
general, and it's mostly you (Alberto) who are taking care of this package 
alone.

I already saw that you corrected in the VCS the Standard Version and dpatch 
issue.  If you want me to upload new revisions please tell me, since I can 
do it.

Just one thing that I think that you might have oversought: you are not 
updating previous lib-SONAMEd versions in Conflict lines.  For example:
----------------
Package: libopenscenegraph80
Section: libs
Architecture: any
Depends: ${misc:Depends}, ${shlibs:Depends}
Conflicts: libopenscenegraph, libopenscenegraph2, libopenscenegraph3, 
libopenscenegraph1c2, libopenscenegraph7, libopenscenegraph55
----------------

I am not completely sure that this Conflicts thing is necessary or correct, 
but I think that the intent is to conflict on older versions of the 
libraries to provide "upgrade path hints" to the resolver.  This Conflicts 
line migh be necessary to tell the resolver "hey, libwhatever-
SONAME_previous is myself when I was younger... even if my binary package 
name changed".

(Sorry for the silly example, but it's difficult to explain for me and I 
hope that you understand it better this way :) ).

So if all of this is correct, you are missing at least libopenscenegraph65, 
and I can't remember if we released something between libopenthreads11 and 
libopenthreads14.

Also, to avoid the NMU-related lintian warnings maybe you should add 
yourself to Uploaders even if you are not DM yet, just to avoid the warning.  
I don't know if there's a standard way to do this, but I think that in most 
cases non-DDs put themselves as maintainers even if they are not maintainers 
at all and then get sponsored by a DD, and that's why lintian doesn't 
complain for those packages.  So adding yourself to Uploaders shouldn't be 
wrong, or maybe even you should be listed as Maintainer and Loic and me as 
Uploaders...

Cheers.
