Sounds to me like a bug in debhelper, then: That you have not raised the
floor of debhelper to compatibility level 3, but removed the floor.
Or rephrased: Is it a documented "feature" that debhelper now _mandates_
a debian/compat file - that leaving it out does not assume lowest
supported compatibility level but cause breakage?
