watch file - remove or only comments?


I wonder what of these two options is the "correct" solution for an
upstream that is not watch'able (e.g. has no release tarballs, etc.) -
besides making upstream have release tarballs, that is ;):

 a) no watch file
 b) a watch file with only comments

In case a), lintian complains and proposes to place a watch file with a
comment explaining why it is otherwise empty [0].

In case b), (at least( the DMD [1] complains about empty uscan output.

I am tempted to say this is a bug in the DMD.

Any opinions (I won;t dare hoping for the one answer ;)).
