Please drop the 7 when referring to dh to avoid unnecessary confusion:
Yes, debhelper 7 introduced "dh", the piece which clashes with CDBS (due
to partly reimplementing it), but debhelper 7 did not drop the classic
dh_* commands and those continue to work fine together with CDBS.

I suggest that instead of "mandating" we instead simply document our
preferences - implicitly inviting strongly opiniated newcomers to try
argue their case.
That leaves the door open for change: Had the team mandated dh few
months ago, then I would have simply stayed away. It would be lovely if
all of Debian could agree on a single set of tools (as long as *my*
preferences are the ones agreed on ;-) ), but strict team rules is not
helping towards that goal IMO.
