Hmm, why don't you use a CAfile which is not provided by the
package but one that is created by you on your own and which only
incorporates the certificates you want to accept?  That way you
won't interfer with packaging.

Does enabling with debconf only those certificates you want to accept
not help as well?

Hmm.  When using the directory it should be sufficient to add the
missing hash link in /etc/ssl/certs?

openssl x509 -hash -noout -in cacert-class3.pem will calculate it.
Don't forget to add ".0" to the calculated name.
