Source package taking over removed package's place in the namespace

I didn't get any response on debian-mentors, so I repost this question here:

Situation: Two source packages collide in the namespace. The second one gets 
rather awkward name. Later, the first package dies and is removed from 
unstable, testing, and (after release) stable, but still remains in 

Question: Can the second source package take the first source package's (less 
awkward) name, or does it have to wait until oldstable is archived?

Concrete example: lsh/lsh-utils (see bug 340354).
