Re: Doing a proper package split (cream)

That only makes sense when the documentation is large and the package
has arch-specific components. Since both packages are arch:all, at least
in the control file you posted, I doubt it is worth it.
If there is no functional conflict, you can omit the Conflicts: here, as
you are merely replacing files in the old version. This would, however,
allow a situation where the new docs and the old programs are installed.
