Comment (by Otto42):

 For cases where the slug changes for a post, WordPress should handle this
 by itself, automatically, using the wp_old_slug_redirect() functionality
 built into the core. On slug change, the old slug should be saved into
 meta as _wp_old_slug and then the wp_old_slug_redirect() will kick in at
 template_redirect and send a 301 for that. WordPress has had this built in
 since 2.1.

 If it doesn't work, then we'd need an example to see why the _wp_old_slug
 meta isn't being set properly, or to adjust the post type code to handle
 it properly. So, my advice would be to try it on a page and see what
 happens, then we can adjust accordingly.
