You mean something like: http://ftp-master.debian.org/REJECT-FAQ.html ?

But I see your point. Also note that that list is not IMO clear enough
to explain Steve's reject (i.e. it does not state «we will reject any
source package with at least one file not accounted for by
debian/changelog»). But still it is a good start. I guess that it should
just be better advertised (pointer from developers-reference?) and
clarified as soon as cases like this one arise.
