Thanks for doing this. But I have to say that the tone of your
document isn't really appropriate for the social context. It reads
very much like a series of demands and instructions.
We aren't in a position to dictate to upstream. Upstream can do what
they want, and what we should be doing is offering friendly advice
along with explanations.
As it is, I'm afraid, I think your document does more harm than good.
The wiki page (http://wiki.debian.org/UpstreamGuide) is much better.
Sorry to be discouraging.
