My popsition is that you have not presented enough reason to do this.
So do not do this.

Hmmm... I think if we drop the symbol file, packaging tool chain
automatically generates the shlibs file.   Please look into your
generated binary package to verify :-)  I see it there.

I suggest you to add the following at the top of debian/rules file if
you have not.  I am doing this for all my new upload (see ibus).

# See dpkg-buildflags(1)
include /usr/share/dpkg/default.mk
#export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS = hardening=+all
export DEB_CFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND  = -Wall -pedantic
export DEB_LDFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND = -Wl,--as-needed

This also helps you to test build consistently etc.  This is good idea
for the newer dpkg(>1.16.1).

See explantion in the EXAMPLES section of dpkg-buildflags(1) manpage.
