Bug#833169: dpkg-dev-el: debian/NEWS is loaded in debian-changelog-mode, which encourages lintian debian-news-entry-uses-asterisk complaints

The format in devref doesn't actually have any justification, which is
odd. I also think that if the format of some file in a package is
normative, then it should be in policy, not devref. Oh well.

What do you suggest we do here? Open debian/NEWS in readme-debian-mode?
That suports only a single timestamp. Asterisks are (literally)
hardcoded into debian-changelog-mode, so I don't know how easy that
would be to change.
