What about modifying the format of conffiles to allow:

<conffile>[ <old conffile>]

Which would let dpkg know that it should look for <old conffile> and rename
it to <conffile> (usual change-detection should apply); if it doesn't exist
then just install the new file.
A debhelper script could later ease the editing of conffiles for that
