It doesn't look bad, except for [1]. I'd encourage you to read [2]
carefully (normally a Breaks/Replaces pair should do the trick).
I can give you a couple of hints:

 1. Always run lintian on the packages built with appropriate options
such as "-i -I -E --pedantic --profile debian"
 2. Test the full upgrade path from 0.5.0+svn5324~dfsg1-1.
