I think we are somewhat constrained by the file format, but we will take
a look before the final release.

There should be a NEWS entry for openafs-fileserver to get displayed
on interactive updates (https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-k5-afs/openafs.git/tree/debian/openafs-fileserver.NEWS?h=experimental) at the moment.
I thought about trying to do it automatically in postinst, but decided
that such functionality was not needed for the first alpha; I'll probably
revisit that before the final release gets uploaded to Debian.
