This already happens.  libreadline now has its own source package, but
for example:

Package: alsa-modules-2.2.13
Priority: optional
Section: sound
Installed-Size: 1541
Maintainer: Masato Taruishi <taru@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Source: alsadriver (0.4.1e-7)
Version: 0.4.1e-7+2.2.13-1

Note the version number on the Source field.  It's generated automatically.
