Agreed.

First (and that's why I keep -policy, and even add -doc to Cc), it might
be interesting to remove the README.Debian-source suggestion in devref
6.7.8.2 and specify debian/copyright there.

Second, I'm now wondering whether some modifications/additions to the
copyright format proposal[1] should be done so as to make it easy to
specify which files/directories were removed and for which reason (no
sources, no license, unsuitable license, etc.).
