I agree.

But also I would like to suggest that people editing debian/ should
explicitly add a CC0 dedication (or similar) somewhere.

The licence of debian/ needs to be comptatible with the licence of
the rest of the package, and it is often useful to copy fragments from
one debian/ to another.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
