You should only rename binaries if its necessary for the Debian
package (eg. a name clash, or multiple versions of this package have
to coexist).
Otherwise leave the name alone. Users, developers and the documentation
normally refer to the original name and a rename would confuse things.

Of course there is nothing against asking for renaming at the upstream
author.
