This is just my opionion: Don't increase the Debian version and change the
target. Re-creating a tag is not an issue. This tag hasn't been used anywhere
nor isn't there anything relying on it.

A clean workflow further would be to create an experimental (or
debian/experimental) branch in case one needs to push a fix to the package(s)
in unstable as long as the experimental packages wait in NEW. Note that if the
branch is not the repository's default branch the Vcs-Git field in d/control
should pass on the branch information as:

Vcs-Git: <URL> -b <BRANCH>

This actually helps the Debian tracker. It usually also requires to adjust the
git-buildpackage configuration. So one has to add debian/gbp.conf to determine
the correct debian-branch or use either the --git-debian-branch or the --git-
ignore-branch switches.
