I'd specifically exclude that. You need to build under sid to ensure
the package will build and work properly in Debian's development
release. Since you are building/testing under sid, you may as well run
sid lintian. While useful for ensuring backportability, building under
stable isn't useful if you want to contribute to the next Debian
release, which is what new and updated packages should be
concentrating on.
