Yes, but by the admin, not by Debian, and the admin may not be interested in adding a new layer of possible failures, because it works.
But still, this does not change the original question: how will we deal with these significant upstream changes in many important packages.
Well, I think we should do the same we are doing with other packages whose upstream uses thinks we don’t want (e.g. /opt or non-free files): we patch it so that it fits the Debian way.
