I think it's useful to develop documentation aimed at where we want to
be, a little more than where we are, as the documentation takes a while
However, I agree that the documenting the "normal" tools is entirely
necessary. You can't understand Debian packaging well, without
understanding the processes it was designed for.
In the beginning, when you don't have a clue what you are doing, having
simple abstractions can help a lot. But soon enough, the packager will need
to understand the concept of source packages and all the tools for
dealing with them.
