It needs to add some compatibility aliases or adjust the CC-mode (and
maybe other?) code that refers to those functions with their old name.
Also, I'd prefer to rename the functions so that they all share
a `subword-' prefix.

Yes.  Please make sure you commit the add and the delete as a single
commit rather than as two separate commits.

Indeed, there's no support for renaming.

Usually I write one entry for the new name that says something like
"Rename from <oldname>".  You can also add second entry for the old name
that says "Rename to <newname>".  You'll also want to add to the entry
for the new name the changes performed (renaming of the functions, ...),
of course.
