Well the clean target brings the building directory in the shape it is
in the source tarball. The sense of our debian/control template
is just to be clean of any binary target information. Thus the clean
target has the task to *remove* the information we need in the next
step to obtain a *.dsc file with all information. The only solution
would be a hook inbetween building the source tarball and the *.dsc

May be this would help. The shortest way is to look at the source
of debian-med packages which build depend from cdd-dev. If you
want to see the "hacky solution" for the problem check out CVS
of cdd and debian-med package.
