not if you build-depend on oldpackge | gcc-source and just build the
firmware again if the old package is not available. Building the
firmware is pretty easy and takes 5 minutes on my machine.
But you're right, thre's no need to rebuild Davids provided firmware
blob, especially since it will not run on a user's computer.
debian/rules will allow to rebuild it for the paranoids, though.
