You have to keep in mind that you will not be the only one to work on your 
package. You cannot assume that you'll maintain them forever, and even if it 
would be the case, there may have NMUs, or security updates that will need 
that another maintainer work on your package. 
According to this, everything that makes your package easier to understand and 
handle for an external maintainer is a good thing, and using patches that 
explain what they do, one for each different purpose *is* a good packaging 

Everyone is crying out for peace, yes
None is crying out for justice
I don't want no peace
I want equal rights and justice
