nodejs is really needed in testing, so lets rename /usr/bin/node to /usr/bin/nodejs and drop the Conflict entry. Then build another package called nodejs-node, which depends on nodejs, and contains a symlinks /usr/bin/node to nodejs and conflicts the node package. Maybe add a "Suggest: nodejs-node" to the nodejs package. nodejs-node might even be its own source package.

After that the fight can continue between the nodejs-node and node package. Then nodejs can migrate to testing and nodejs-node can be held back by this issue.

If nodejs had been in testing it would have been protected from this annoying bug:
