It could be done in debian/rules like this:

override_dh_install:
        dh_install
        for f in DroidSansFallback.ttf DroidSansFallbackLegacy.ttf ; \
        do ; \
                cd debian/fonts-droid/usr/share ; \
                mv fonts/truetype/droid/$$f \
                   fonts-droid/truetype/$$f || true ; \
        done

I like that solution. That way we would safely get rid of risks for
confusing fontconfig and causing subtle bugs.
