Does that mean that I'd add a 'debian' directory adjacent to 'src'?

In principle I think this would be acceptable, as long as you're listed as 
the "maintainer", and Ty and I are listed as the authors and "upstream 
maintainers", if I'm understanding the Debian jargon correctly.  Also, 
please make sure the copyright info correctly credits the third-party 
packages included with PEAK.

Go ahead and e-mail me the files directly (i.e. not to the list).  Thanks.
