Yes. And the big number of rejects due to incorrect debian/copyright
files (more than for technical reasons) shows that it is neccessary.

If we wouldnt check the packages we would have stuff in debian that
contains statements like "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE THAT CODE TO
ANYONE", has license incompatibilities, talks about legal actions
against you if you modify code, etc. pp.
