One question: if the "File: *" line in the first File paragraph is missing (*), should it be added automatically ?

Nope, the "Files" field must always be there explicitly. (Note that it's "Files", not "File", but I expect that was just a typo in your mail.)

(*) the examples shown in http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/ page are lacking a "File: *" line in the first File paragraph.

You're right, and the spec's examples are wrong. Fixed in r157.

Is that so?!? Then please clarify what the paranthesis below means:

  Required (not in header paragraph).

My understanding is that our previous special handling of an initial Files: * section was changed into the header paragraph having an implicit "Files: *" section with optional Copyright and License added.
