The dh_make template includes that empty line - no wonder almost all RFS's you 
comment on have that deficiency, if it is one.

In addition, can't it be said that the final blank line is part of the format 
of a changelog.Debian entry?

---->8-----
$package ($version) $distribution; urgency=$urgency

 * $change[0]
 * $change[1]
 * ...

 -- $Maintainer <$maintainer_address>  $date

----8<----

There is always a blank line after the maintainer line before the following 
(chronologically previous) entry.
