I agree to make source format switch optional for now.

But I propose to also make optional the choice of either CDBS or 
short-form dh7.

If short-form dh7 becomes mandatory, I will leave the team.  This is not 
meant as a thread (although the net result is somewhat the same), but 
selfish lazyness: I use CDBS for all 100+ packages that I am involved in 
maintaining officially for Debian.

Kind regards,
