All such patches should be submitted upstream, and the final decision 
for that would be whatever upstream prefers.

If in doubt, I would start with whatever is the simplest correct change.
It is unlikely that someone will insist on keeping marginally relevant
information like in this case.

Debian has already done a lot of work regarding reproducible,
so checking there for existing patches first is always a good idea.
