Thank you for the followup on this.  I am Cc:ing this reply to
debian-mentors because I do not know exactly what I have to do.  Please Cc:
any followup to 234942@bugs.debian.org (as set in Reply-To:).

Your suggestion was already implemented over two years ago, as per the
following changelog.Debian entry:

tipa (1:1.1.beta-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/rules: Remove hack for fixing the code from
    prerm-defoma-hints.  The prerm script contains now purge-all and not
    purge-all-all.  (This closes: #145519, thanks to Gerfried Fuchs

The problem is that tipa has version version 1:1.1.beta-3 in woody (i.e. the
fix above came too late). Furthermore, the sarge version of the package
contains the following "fix":

tipa (2:1.1-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Moved the defoma-hints file to the xfonts-tipa package.  It was
    erroneously associated with the tipa package, and was causing nasty
    warnings when abiword-common was installed with tipa but without
    xfonts-tipa (closes: #161076).  Thanks to Ian Zimmerman

I think that I have messed too much with the prerm scripts of bothe the tipa
and the xfonts-tipa packages. Unfortunately, fixing things right now is far
beyond what I can afford from my free time budget.  Please, help me.
