Proper way to remove a package from both sarge and sid


how should I properly approach the removal of a package which I 

Package in question is mozilla-firefox-locale-da which is to be replaced 
by mozilla-firefox-locale-da-dk (not maintained by me) from source 
package mozilla-firefox-locale-all. 

Unfortunetaly, mozilla-firefox-locale-da and 
mozilla-firefox-locale-da-dk don't conflict, so users trying to install 
both will face trouble.

mozilla-firefox-locale-da-dk just entered sid today and will most likely 
enter sarge within the normal 10 days.

I was thinking this:

1) mail to submit@bugs.debian.org today:
Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: important
Tags: sid

< explain reason for removal... >

2) 1 day before mozilla-firefox-locale-da-dk goes in sarge:
Ask on debian-release: hint/tag my package for removal

BTW, what does RoM and RoQA mean?
