Sure, but iirc Debian handles it by having Maintainer and Uploaders fields. 
From my point of view Maemo packages should have Maintainer field changed even 
when there is no changes in Debian package (other then recompilation).

Why? Simple - how original maintainer can maintain package on platform unknown 
to him? On system which is not Debian even...
