Bug#96597: changing policy requirements for debian native packages to _MUST_

I like the fact that this is optional. The way I do this for my packages
is by using a changelog for changes to the code, and changelog.Debian
for changes to the packaging. This works nicely: all the intiminate details
can be found in the changelog for those who need it, and the less
interesting summaries and debian-specifics are in changelog.Debian for
those who prefer a more brief list.
