 Erm, you have said that way too often in this thread to not receive a
response for it: There is *no* editing needed for a testing-to-stable
migration; otherwise it wouldn't be a migration but a rebuild. There is
also *no* editing involved in unstable-to-testing migration. The package
is taken *as is*, there is no changes done to either the binary or the
source package.

 I think you have a major misunderstanding here, or at least choose bad
wording that makes it sound that a migration of a package requires it to
get rebuilt.
