I guess then they should not be closed via the Debian changelog at all, but 
seperate mails to nnnn-done@bugs should be used.

Would the position 'if a bug (upstream or not) is closed via the debian 
changelog, some description must be given how this was done' make sense? 
(Debian changes that don't happen to close bugs should still be documented, 
of course. It's not 'if and only if').
