Could you report this as an actual bug instead of via email to
debian-devel?  The pseudo-package is qa.debian.org.

Your interpretation matches Policy 5.6.26, for the record, so indeed this
should be fixed (unless we intend to change Policy).

    In the case of Git, the value consists of a URL, optionally followed
    by the word -b and the name of a branch in the indicated repository,
    following the syntax of the git clone command.  If no branch is
    specified, the packaging should be on the default branch.
