Yes, it must go in... only the Description is a bit problematic, since you'll
get with the below:
Description: Linux kernel, version linux-2.6.11

Description: Linux kernel, version user-mode-linux-2.6.11
and so on... could you restore $version instead of $packagename and have a
dual Description (taking the right UML one from the mainline-Debian package
if you can).

For the rest, no problem I can see (but I'm no Debian user).
