allow wildcards in data-files or extra-source-files?

Some packages end up with very very long fields for data-files or extra-source-files. Is this a problem? Should we allow some kind of globing to make it a bit less verbose?
extra-source-files: cbits/*.h c-sources: cbits/*.c
On the other hand, there is a danger with globing that you pick up too many files. Perhaps we can counter that by making the globing rather restrictive, like no subdirectory recursion, and only allowing *'s in the final directory component, so no data/*/* patterns. Is there a sweet spot that allows conciseness without including too much accidentally?
