Exept that you forgot to mention how you will modify the configuration file to 
change the $IP in /etc/mediawiki1.7/LocalSettings.php

And also how you will handle the move from /var/lib/mediawiki1.7 
to /etc/mediawiki1.7: with or without notifing the administrator ?
Then of course it needs a debconf warning.
