Wouldn't that put the debian packaging in a strange place,
with the orig.tar.gz containing a deb?  That said, I didn't find
an explicit prohibition of it in debian-policy or devel-ref yet.

I think you'd still need to split the package list in debian/control
into depends, suggests and recommends first.

The command:
    sudo mk-build-deps -i debian/control
might do 90% of what is needed anyway, but I've not tested it on
a clean system yet.
