I think it is fine. The new packages have a different version number due to
updated ourdelta/bakery, so there should be no risk of confusion between
(slightly) different packages with different names.

Just be aware that the new packages no longer include a default apparmor
profile. This applies to all Ubuntu versions (not just Oneiric). If upgrading
users modified their old apparmor profile they will be asked and can choose to
keep it, but for default installs, apparmor will be silently disabled.

(Ie. maybe a note in the release notes is in order ...)

Looks fine, I've pushed it.
