Not only, quoting from policy:

  `debian/README.source' may also include any other information that
  would be helpful to someone modifying the source package.

NMUers are modifying source packages, so in theory there they can also
find info targeted to them. But I agree that it is somehow blurry if
that info belong to that file or not. So if you want to drop it, drop
it, we can postpone the change.
