distributing my modified tar.gz disguising it as the upstream original
one would be cause of confusion

All of the kernel-source packages that need it have an orig.tar.gz
without non-free bits. Look at the 'prune' target in kernel-source-2.6.8
for example.

It's just as wrong to make it Debian native as it is to say it's an
"upstream original" that in reality lacks some non-free bits. And in
practice, the latter is the lesser of two evils.
