Since the code snippet you quoted will accept a match for either the
"real name" part or the email part, you could just add a secondary UID
with the same (spelling of your) name but a Debian-specific email address.
That's what I did before I became a DD, for much the same reason.

In other words, this would be fine:

    John Doe <john@example.com>
    John Doe <john-debian@example.com>

but this wouldn't work:

    John Doe <john@example.com>
    Jonathan Frederick Doe <john-debian@example.com>
