I'm a bit ambivalent ...

On one hand, I also think that a separete package for a script which
then depends on on the rest anyway is overkill and bloats the
Packages file and everything.

On the other hand, for non-perl maintainers the information might be
easier to "install cme and then run `cme check dpkg'" than "run `cme
check dpkg', oh, cme is in libconfig-model-perl, and you also need
libconfig-model-dpkg-perl". (If I got the package names right now :))
