The orig.tar should either be exactly the tarball from upstream or
have non-free content removed (or maybe hundreds of MB of embedded
code copies). Just recompressing the tarball with a different
compression format isn't a valid reason to differ from upstream here.
If you want a different compression format, get upstream to switch.
get-orig-source is definitely needed for the non-free/code copies
removal case.

This would be a reason to modify the upstream tarball, then you can
use xz and add a get-orig-source. Removing the fonts and using xz
should be pushed upstream though.
