I think these are separate bugs which you can fix in the same upload.

In particular the decision to ignore the "is not source" problem for
these files in wheezy needs to be taken separately.  If the Release
Team don't feel ignoring this issue is appropriate, I guess you should
do the work to remove the content in wheezy (leaving the empty file as
you suggest).

Personally I think if you have tested that removing the file contents
works, ignoring this issue for wheezy is lower-risk.  But I know that
some people take a much firmer line on these kind of issues.

I assume you have the patch ready for post-wheezy ?  Since you seem to
say you've tested it.  Perhaps you could post this patch to the bug
report too ?
