the last changelog entry says

   * New binary: libxml2-utils-dbg.
     Move debuggings symbols of libxml2-utils binaries to another package
     in favor of marking libxml2-dbg as M-A: same. Descriptions of related
     binary packages are slightly modified.

I don't think this is really needed: with debhelper compat level 9, debhelper
will move debug symbols to files that include a unique build id:

---- contents of libxml2-utils-dbg_2.7.8.dfsg-9_amd64.deb ----
-rw-r--r-- root/root     56964 2012-04-23 09:52 ./usr/lib/debug/.build-id/f0/3930eb4c5214d7f420d236bc989f8ec5478953.debug

So you should be able to have all debug symbols in a single, multi-arch:same

I'm going to accept the new package, but please consider to drop it in your
next upload again.
