Not quite sure what is the central issue of yours here.

CDBS is *not* a tool for beginners to do packaging blind-folded!

I believe (and hope) same is true for short-form dh.

CDBS use (long-form) debhelper tools.  If you experience a sensible 
use-case impossible or awkward to express using CDBS, then please do 
contact us at the [CDBS mailinglist] or file a bugreport against it.

[CDBS mailinglist]: 

If you know what you are doing but believe there is an issue more 
enerally with how Debian (and debhelper and CDBS) deals with upstart, 
then please isolate the problematic long-form debhelper command instead 
of convoluting in some more specific packaging style.

If you need help packaging in general, then perhaps debian-users or 
debian-mentors are more appropriate than this list.

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
