IIRC, we already discussed about this before.  I do not see why a package
containing only that file would be problematic, or not beneficial.  Is disk
occupancy the problem?  Remember that putting the file in emacsen-common
will make it appear in every box that has a flavor of Emacs installed, even
if the users are not expected to do Debian package development.  This would
be a real bloat.

In our archive, there are already a couple of small packages containing only
emacsen add-ons, like prcs-el and octave2.0-emacsen.

At any rate, thanks for your work on debian-changelog-mode.el!
