Just a suggestion (somebody else already offered to sponsor the
package): could you take a look at Rules-Requires-Root in Policy 4.9.2
and see if you couldn't set it in the Source control section?

Also, recent versions of debhelper introduced automatic handling of
"--with something" if the dh-* package "Provides: dh-sequence-something"
so that any packages that use it may build-depend (or B-D-I) on
dh-sequence-something and debhelper will automatically assume "--with
something", further simplifying the rules file.
