Use "Replaces"?

Original package is foo 1.0.  This is split up into two packages: foo
2.0, bar 2.0.

    Package: bar
    Version: 2.0
    Conflicts: foo (<< 2.0)

Should bar also have this?:

    Replaces: foo (<< 2.0)

Assume that we want foo 1.0 to apt-get upgrade smoothly to foo 2.0 + bar
2.0 and that we want the user to be able to downgrade easily to foo 1.0.
