As for automake, you should strongly recommend AM_MAINTAINER_MODE.
Packages without this macro are a real pain to patch.

If upstream wants maintainer mode by default (as you have without the
macro set), they just need to set AM_MAINTAINER_MODE([enable]). By
default, cdbs and dh will disable it and everyone is happy.
