I'd call it "a limitation of the dependency tracking mechanism", it's a
variant of the deleted header problem mentioned in the chapter
  info Automake "Dependency Tracking Evolution"
but now for non-header source files.

Maybe Automake should document it more prominently, or add the same kind
of machinery for source files?  (There may be reasons why this is not
possible, or a bad thing to do, but I'm not aware of any right now.)

Luckily it's less common to rename source files which are not header
