I fail to see what problem that would solve here. The minification
happens on Debian's buildds using tools from main. What would we gain by
not doing it?

The context of your answer is one of security updates. Why would we want
to do security updates for the JavaScript shipped with documentation? Do
you see an attack vector here?

Even assuming an attack vector, I think the easiest way here would be to
upload a fixed Doxygen and then binNMU/nochange-NMU all reverse

Really, pulling Doxygen in this discussion is a straw man nowadays.
Please pick better examples or arguments.
