I think the timestamp is a good idea.

Take a look at http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/policy.html - it
explains e.g. the changelog stuff.
The "UNRELEASED" distribution entry in debian/changelog is just for
a) letting others see that the package is not ready for upload yet
b) let versioncheck.pl (the script that produces versions.html)
ignore this particular new version
