I would prefer to apply your change; mainly because it removes the
special handling of udebs in one place (and fewer special cases is
always better).

However, I am not sure about the required format to udeb .desc files. As
you describe it, the situation is:

* the Package: field is not needed for udebs
* but if it is there and contains alternatives, the installation breaks.

Do I understand you correctly?
