your renaming can also be considered "just for beauty and not really needed" :)

I'm not okay with leaving in these transition packages indefinately.

Additionally, we need specific tracking of which of our applications
need to have their dependancies changed. Having a specific retirement
date on the empty packages helps with that too.
