That sounds like a good idea.

Hmm, I'm not sure how to do it. We need to change the Source: in the
.changes file right?

Changing the Source: in the .deb itself is not too hard:

        dh_gencontrol -- -Vkvers=$(KVERS) -DSource=kernel-source-$(KVERS)

That will work the same with or without apt-src.
However, that Source: does not show up in the .changes. Perhaps a flag
to pass to dpkg-genchanges is called for? Very nasty hacking of the
control file might also work but ugh.
