I was just reading through this, and was thinking "I've never done that before, nor have any of my sponsors asked me to do it either" I've never actually seen this practice. For me, a version bump should only be made for uploads that actually go into Debian. If/when I'm working with anyone as a sponsor, and they do this, It'll be sent back to them to change the version number to correspond with the debian release. Mentors.debian.net is just a holding ground IMO.
