Maybe the right fix for this the situation is to establish an easy way to
 - solicit feedback about a packaging situation one is unsure about
 - document the "best way to solve problem X" either in
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/CodeReviews or
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide

I can see a number of additional benefits in this solution.

Also in this case a feedback loop would help to educate the whole team.

Have a nice day,
 Daniel
