Note that this policy change make a difference for
arch: all source packages. For them, it is currently equivalent
to use 'Build-Depends-Indep' and 'Build-Depends'

be safer since it cover clean (this trigger a lintian warning

It can be worthwhile to state explicitly what happen for source
arch:all packages in the policy.
