That is not a valid reason to pretend it is a native package. The
correct thing to do is to create a new .orig.tar.gz with the offending
files removed from it, but keep the rest of the .orig.tar.gz
unchanged. Debian changes and package infrastructure should still go
in a .diff.gz, and the package version should consist of an upstream
version with a separate Debian revision.
