While I think this is true for finished packages, I think having
CVS in an source-package can make sense for experimental packages
to be shared between an group of people. Beeing able to
unpack it and first update it to the newest upstream-version 
is quite nice. (There are other possiblities for it, but I think
this has it's uses).

Therefore I think an lintian warning might be good (Though having
its problems with strange upstream), but having some build script
remove them would destroy possibilities.
