This is ok, but, I don't think mentors.debian.net allows you to
re-upload the same version.

Its not a bug to deviate from the developers reference, since it is just
a best-practices document. I'd guess that there probably isn't much
point fixing this, but it should be fixed in the developers reference if

Yeah, that is a good idea.

Well, in debian there is a tradition of for each config file, there is
an equivalent .d directory that can be used by packages other than the
one that installs the config file. For example /etc/logrotate.conf
and /etc/logrotate.d. I'm just extending this idea to the
module-assistant compliant.list so that packages don't have to request
to be added to the list before they can be built with m-a.
