I agree, in this case it is probably not necessary to rename.  Usually,
when a .orig.tar.gz is renamed, it is to indicate that something is
missing or added.  For example, many packages have .dfsg. in the name
since they have had source files or documentation removed because they
were non-free.  Removing the shipped embedded library does not
functionaly change the package, since those components will be
substituted by the appropriate library packages in Debian.
