CDBS should handle this case gracefully.  Specifically, 

1) debian/rules debian/control should fail hard unless an environment variable is set.  

2) The rule should be called automatically.

This will cause an FTBFS on the buildd where the debian/control file is out of date while still preserving the autogenerate function for maintainers who like this feature.
