The obvious thing to do would seem to me to create new templates and use 
those for DPN. I'd keep the path the same for now.

Templates are in english/template/debian/weeklynews/, so just create a new 
dir projectnews next to that, copy existing templates over, edit as 
needed, and retroactively change header and footer references in DPNs to 

And change the index page for 2008 as well.

Not if you do it as described above. Old DWNs would remain unchanged.

I don't see a problem with retroactively correcting already published 
DPNs, but others may disagree.

I don't see that as a huge problem. I'd keep the URL/directory unchanged 
for now.
