How about adding a file named, e.g., README.dfsg or
README.changes-from-upstream to the modified .orig.tar.gz version
pointing out what has been done? A version number or a package
name is easy to misinterpret, but adding a file with an
explanation should be unambiguous (although it would be possible
to miss it).
