I got into the habit of doing it that way because for some of my packages
there isn't a clear mapping between the Debian version and the upstream
version.  (Tildes may have to be added, for example, and dfsg removed.)  I
ended up doing it the same way everywhere, although I agree that for
simpler cases it would be better to use debian/changelog.
