Not very kind :-/

No idea about the packagers. What I know, is that change all soffice  
inside the  $INSTALL_DIR/program  is difficult, but change the shell  
name calling it is easy. That's even what I did with OOo4Kids and  
OOoLight. For that, I created, located in sysui/desktop/ 
share, and containing:


exec /%PREFIX/program/soffice "$@"


PREFIX contains the install path, and you can rename it, or whatever name, of course.

Next step : the code to be modified stands in sysui/dekstop/share/ file + some little things in the makefile and in the  
Debian control file maybe. Of course, if you need, you can reuse what  
I did in OOo4Kids and I'll relicense it under Apache License.
