If it comes up so often, isn't it obvious that there's something fundamentally
wrong with the subject of the topic?
If you are only using functionality provided by that package, it doesn't mean
there's no other use cases possible.
Said that, I can give you one argument and I would like to see you counter it.
Providing an application package under a different name, that it is known in
respective package management system is only sensible, if your package is
supposed to coexist with the same application packaged by a different vendor.
PHP5x packages by https://launchpad.net/~skettler would be an example.
But if that not the case, and your packaging is supposed to be a complete
replacement, you absolutely must provide same names, or you will break whole
packaging manager, and anything that is dependent on the application you
package will not be able to be installed, until your packages are removed.

Also, I would really appreciate, if you don't top-post.
It makes reading the messages unnecessarily hard.

With best regards,
