Seems very right to me.  But I would like to add the following to it.

When mainstream is updated, hello-1.3 -> hello-1.4
Non-usual-maintainer updates, hello-1.3-8 -> hello-1.4-0.1
Usual-maintainer updates, hello-1.3-8 -> hello-1.4-1

Usual-maintainer should never use -0 for revisions.
And if we agree on this, it should be mandated in the manual.
