That's a bit too generic, I'd go with clojure-data-xml instead.

libdata-xml-clojure sounds correct. Why do you find it odd?

It is a valid upstream changelog, you don't have to compose a new one.
Though, if data.xml is past 0.0.7 now, then CHANGES is obsolete, and
should not be shipped in the binary.

If that is the case, you can either construct an upstream changelog from
git log (for example), or just don't ship one. You can do the first
manually, storing it somewhere under debian/, so you won't have to
repackage or patch upstream sources.
