Yes, debian/rules parses the changelog in a low-tech way in some
source packages.  Someone with access to the lintian lab might be able
to say how many packages would be hurt by not being able to read the
binary package version from there (hopefully not many --- most
packages use dpkg-parsechangelog instead).
