You shouldn't do that but contact the submitter of the ITP and/or follow

OK, I'll do that.

fix them AFAIK as we don't have the sources;
That's true for the former but not for the latter one. Just use
dh_strip, you may have to exclude some binaries though, [...]
That's fine, I'll try. Just one question, is there a way to check if
stripped libraries still work, short of installing them?
I basically agree, just one minor comment: There's no reason to believe
that the driver for X.org 6.8 wouldn't work with any future 6.8.x
You mean you think I should relax the match for version '6.8.' and make
it '6.8.[0-9]' or even '6.8.[0-9]*' ? I agree in part, but I thought it's
better to disallow building on different X.Org versions until someone
actually checked that it works fine and explicitly allows it.
In fact, now that I think about it, when I build the binary package I set
the dependency on xserver-xorg to >= 6.8.0 and << 6.8.99; either the
dependency or the matching needs to be changed.
