I think it's a bad idea.

As far as I understand it, standard Debian setup is stable source 
tarballs from "upstream", then Debian maintainer adds "debian/", 
updating it as needed for each new upstream release and/or packaging fixes.

I think it's better to keep the "debian/" stuff managed separately, and 
for stable source tarballs to be released when the author(s) feel they 
are ready to be packaged for Debian and/or any other distro/OS/whatever.

Better to have distro maintainers do what they're good at and Pd 
maintainers do what they're good at, rather than trying to do the whole 
world's job, imo.
