As far as I understood you are using lintian results.  However,
the real packaging does not (always) reflect this.  At least I've
found an example.  Link [4] lists:

   
    biococoa (U)         does not use Debhelper (no compat level found) (source version: 2.2.2-4)
    biococoa (U)         should switch to dh. Current build system: cdbs (source version: 2.2.2-4)


However:  

   $ apt-get source biococoa
   $ cd biococoa-2.2.2/
   $ cat debian/compat
   10
   $ grep debhelper debian/control
   debhelper (>= 11~),

Are you sure that you are not tricked by false positives from lintian?

Kind regards and thanks a lot for this great effort.

       Andreas.
