Committing without touching the changelog at the same time makes it
easier to backport/merge/revert/... stuff.

git-dch creates debian/changelog based on the commit messages,
keeping the task to create a new release (which includes maintaining
the debian/changelog) still easy and simple.

Unless there's a *really* good reason to not use git-dch I'd
strongly vote for keeping our workflow as it is (WRT debian/upstream
branches, git-import-orig, git-dch,...).
