Yes, it should work, but take care of paths removal: you could either run
prerm script instead of postrm script, or check for update-ocamlld before
running it.  You will have to make sure your solution is robust, and it looks
like a hard job ;)
This is why I suggested to ship /etc/ocaml/paths instead, I believe it is
easier to implement.

I did not try, but I guess you could use something like
    DH_AUTOSCRIPTDIR=`pwd`/debian dh_ocamlld
in ocaml-base/debian/rules.
