That seems like a pretty big violation of the spirit, and possibly the
letter, of Debian Policy.

I mean, why not just tell users "Yeah, if you install both of these
node packages, and you try to run node.js with /usr/sbin is in your
path, you might not get what you expected."  That violates the spirit
of Policy too, and it's a lot simpler.
