For those who haven't seen it, the original author of dh, Joey Hess, has
just published a blog post relevant to the discussion we're having:

    I added `dh` to debhelper a decade ago, and now Debian is
    considering making use of `dh` mandatory. Not being part of Debian
    anymore, I'm in the position of needing to point out something
    important about it anyway. So this post is less about pointing in a
    specific direction as giving a different angle to think about
