I am sorry, if I was not clear. I am aware of the "last iteration",
but I am not enquiring about the default policy within debian as to
how we should upload by default.
I am asking why, when I had a reason to do so, was not able to do a
source-only upload.
Is this a feature of dak, or a policy enforcement?

If it's a policy enforcement, I am ok with it. Otherwise, I'd would
like to see dak accept those. I have a vague recollection of a UDD
presentations which did list count of DDs doing source-only uploads.
