The right *temporary* solution then. Remember that this was meant as an
intermediary solution until the full changelog (with the bin-nmu entry)
is just integrated in the package medata (control.tar).

But it's true that it might require more than a cycle until we're there so
it's probably best to not drop this information, even if it's only a
temporary measure.
