I'm surprised that there are so many packages that depend on binaries of 
emacs-snapshot, but after checking some samples I believe them to be all 
or'ed with emacs?
Out of curiosity, how exactly is your workflow?
From seems like Romain is doing 
the Debian packaging and Reinhard pushes them to the archive?
In any case, the request looks reasonable to me, +1.
