Maybe not 'class', but 'rules'.

I don't know.  Maybe a debian/rules like this would work?

#!/usr/bin/make -f
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/emdebhelper.mk
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/makefile.mk

With emdebhelper.mk TBD.  Better alternative: Add useful
commands to the debhelper.mk, for the case if EMBEDIAN is
