So don't rename it. The new name will be missing and the previous available name is a best guess. This is almost precisely what we need to support for 'mature' projects.

A much better idea; "A revision feature" is made available under the new name delegating to the old name and instructing P2 to relax upper bounds on version dependencies. The revision feature could be contributed to the train by any project that has an ongoing interest in the required project and which is prepared to do at least some exercising to demonstrate that the reused feature with relaxed version upper bounds is useful.
