I also prefer regrouping when possible.

Can you explain what are the exact requirements? no small source
packages or no small binary packages? What are the reasons?

I've read the thread. Nothing shows a solution to multiple upstreams
and gbp workflow. See also what Andrew Kelley said [2].

I already maintain 141 packages, I can't do things manually.

So please, don't block those packages, until
- uscan supports for multiple tarballs (#531321)
- git-import-orig supports for multiple tarballs (#561071, and
git-impor-orig --uscan)
- uscan status shown well in qa page and Debian maintainer dashboard
- optionaly #561072 for git-import-dsc
