The main problem is that you can't do that by a normal upgrade.

If you call update-rc.d in the postinst script and there exist
runlevels, the configuration is NOT touched.  And since we have
two different rc/rcS methods (sysvinit+dpkg/file-rc) you even
can't rename the link.

What you could do in the affected postinst is, ask the user to remove
the old setup and install the new one from scratch.

I won't consider this bad.  Please go ahead.
