Yes, and that does not mean you can not hold your debian dir in
upstream. As far as I know, new debian source packages format does not
complain about debian dir in tarball. But if it does, then you still
can hold your debian dir in upstream - just do not include it when you
create your orig tarball for debian (that's what I do).
