I'd say, install it as "changelog.html.gz". The upstream changelog's
aren't that important as the "Debian changelogs", since the first don't
follow a unique "layout" and sometimes include two many details, which are
not intresting for non-developers.

If noone objects, I'll change this the next policy manual, to also allow
"changelog.html.gz" files.
