I would have rather suggested NEWS.Debian if apt-listchanges was higher 
priority. Anyway, this should also be documented in the release notes.

After reading this I went on cleaning my /var/log/ and found some recent 
.0 files (I switched to rsyslog in July):

$ ls -la /var/log/*.0
-rw-r----- 1 root adm  51123 2008-09-19 22:09 /var/log/dmesg.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 46714 2008-09-13 06:25 /var/log/popularity-contest.0

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
