I'm rather unconvinced by this, in general.  The logical conclusion
would be for us to end up with machinery which attempts to make a
fully featured package.  I think this task is best left to a distro.

The "make deb" target is there to provide something convenient for
development and testing.

On to the individual changes:

> - Remove version from installed package name

Why ?

> - Add conffiles to manage main config files on package update

I would be inclined to take this if it were presented on its own.  The
effect can be useful during testing, and a dpkg purge will easily undo

> - Add/remove of main services (xencommons, xendomains)

I think this is a bad idea, for the reasons I explain above.
