You are free to do whatever changes to the package - since a QA upload
is done on a package without a maintainer, there is nobody who will get
annoyed by a change of packaging style or similar. The developers
reference say:

"QA uploads are very much like normal maintainer uploads: they may fix
anything, even minor issues; the version numbering is normal, and there
is no need to use a delayed upload."
