The Red Hat RPMs use interchange.cfg.  In fact, I don't know of any
system that uses catalogs.cfg either and this is the first I've heard of
Debian using it.

My personal opinion is that the interchange developers and documentors
shouldn't have to be concerned with documenting every change that a 3rd
party packager makes to the standard distribution.  If someone is going
to rename files in the Debian package then it should be on his shoulders
to support it, not ours.
