For rsyslog to be a drop in replacement, it should use the same config
file named the same in the same location IMO.

I agree here. Most people expect restarting syslog to be
either /etc/init.d/syslogd restart or service syslogd restart.

I think if you are going obsolete the old syslog here, and this is a one-for-one, drop-in replacement, keeping the same service names and the same configuration file should follow POLS.

The process itself is compiled as syslogd per the upstream package.
