It's not just about the NSD versions. You need to consider all the
distros. Debian maintainer will have to provide aliases for next
stable with warning and remove alias just after next+1 stable is out.

Generally I am against such renaming just "for cleaning up". Does the
"zonec" clash with something else? And please at least don't rename
nsdc to nsd-control.
