So you propose to start with the binNMU and then follow them with the
sourceful upload? This is fine with me, but the sourceful upload is a
showstopper for me: all packages involved in the transition which had a
binNMU but not the corresponding sourceful upload should be RC-bugged.

BTW, with the new .in mechanism I was able to make the transition for
the whole bunch of my packages in one hour or so.
