Actually after some sleep I realized that this should not be an issue
as even if lintian is run on binNMUs then the source checks should not
be performed as no source will be included.

Right, that crossed my mind too, but given the amount of work involved
(most of the time) in fixing this, if a human is involved and has to
edit a file to make it uploadable, the human can as well fix the root
cause. :)
