No, not at all. To convert from native to .orig format you just need to
build with the -sa option to dpkg-buildpackage/debuild, so that the
.orig.tar.gz gets uploaded.

The prohibition is on overwriting existing files, which uploading a new
.orig.tar.gz in a non-1 revision as Turbo wants to do doesn't violate.
