First of all, thanks Jordan for your questions.

I think so. Package transitions require work by archive-admins to
process binary NEW, by developers to manage rebuilds and make sure
everything is fine with new library. This requires more time than a
single, standalone upload.

Changing SONAMEs is something like a new feature to me. Most of the
times there are just ABI bump, where a rebuild is enough, but it's
better to check with motu-release to make sure to be able to complete
the transition in time according to release schedule.
