Well IMO yes it's obsolete. As I originally said, I consider the package
dependency ordering solution both the permanent and sufficient solution.
I always considered script dependencies short term, but if there are
still issues (now that the package dependency solution is 'doing the
right thing') I'm happy to discussion addressing that by either script
depends or tweaks to the package ordering....

I had a brain storm BTW:

my shells not great, but this should give the idea

if [test -e /etc/postinstall/]
  /bin/sh /etc/postinstall/
  mv /etc/postinstall/


I'm not sure whether this is good or bad... :}.
