c) allow build depends on source packages, which it is probably a worst idea.
On the contrary, I think that allowing source packages to be installable in the same way as binary packages is an excellent idea. Imagine you can do:
apt-get install src:linux-2.6which will install Linux sources into a standard location, or upgrade it if it's already installed.
Incidentally, this will allow to trivially implement data packages: a dummy binary package could depend on its own source package.
