this would also make it possible to have spaces in the path name without having
to introduce and implement some escape mechanism for spaces.

Or is it already possible to have spaces in the branch name?

I like your proposal but I would indeed also add a Vcs-Branch field and
encourage maintainers to use it instead of -b (easily checked by lintian). The
advantage would be to avoid "yet more ad hoc, custom syntax into Debian data
files" as already pointed out by Lars Wirzenius elsewhere in this thread.
