Unless you see a security risk, I don't see this being changed for squeeze.
As for the sid/experimental, what's your reasoning for the change? The
idea behind this is not logging in as debian-transmission (hence the
shell:/bin/false), so there is little incentive for having an existing
home dir, specially since transmission-daemon should really only create
files in the directory passed with --config-dir (otherwise, we'd have
/var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config, which IMHO isn't a good idea).

I am, however, open for suggestions.
