This could be useful. A couple of suggestions:

Keep vcs specific tools (git-buildpackage, bzr-builddeb,
svn-buildpackage) in the Recommends field so they are not hard

I suppose you don't you don't list devscripts, gnupg, lintian, dput |
dupload, and dh-make (there are probably some others) as they are
pulled in by other packages. I would explicitly depend on them

Recommends on pbuilder | cowbuilder?.
