Please move "no-standards-version-field" to "wayout".

Because udebs don't follow loads of policy requirements (which is allowed 
because of their nature), and because that makes blindly updating the 
standards version with policy updates a rather meaningless job, the D-I 
team has removed the standards version fields from most source packages 
that produce only udebs; they include a lintian override for that.

So having that tag in nowayout would mean that uploads of udebs will start 
failing massively.
