The reason I didn't do that, is that I think it might not obsolete te current version, as the «replacement package» have an «older» vversion number than te one being obsoleted.
Specifically, rp-pppoe-plugin have version 3.10, but ppp-pppoe that's replacing it have version 2.4.5. So the %rename tag will not even obsolete a 12 year old package. (rp-pppoe v2.5 was released in 2000)

That is how I've understood the %rename tag.
So the way I see it, I should just add a Provides tag.
