I don't see why it would... It's the NMUers responsibility to understand
the code they need to change -- if that happens to be C or perl or
haskell or something built on top of one or more of those, that's their

I would definitely like to see some standardisation -- like changing
from quilt/dpatch to dpkg-source-v2 based patches, or having a standard
README of some sort to explain how the package is built, but I don't see
why it should be mandated.
