Seems ok to me.

I think we could work the way cvs-buildpackage does...
When an upstream version is dumped into cvs, the files (the orig, not
debian control files) should be tagged as "upstream_version_0_71" then
all the files (including debian control files) should be tagged as
"debian_version_0_71-1" "...-2" "...-3". For each debian revision. and
yes, the debian_version tag should only be made when there is a release
to be done.
In the case above (nomeata quote), there is no need to move the tag
debian_version_0_71-1, just create a new tag debian_version_0_71_2.
