Nope. You will need to keep all normal debs anyway, for new
installations.
Now the interesting questions: How many diffs do you keep? How do you
integrate this approach with the minimal security Release files give us
today? What about the kind of signatures dpkg-sig provides?

Anyway, this was proposed some times now. Have you actually read the old
threads and can explain why your proposal is better and actually works?
Why haven't you implemented it yet?
