Rclone sync but no delete. Or copy, but track renames

I want to copy my local files to remote. If the files is exist on the source but has been rename I want it to track renames, but if the file is not exist on the source. i don't want it to be deleted. or moved to backup dir. .

to put it simpy, what i want is

rclone sync local remote: --track-renames --no-delete

is there already a way to do this?

--track-renames only works with sync because it is the files which would be deleted which are the candidates for renaming.

The best I can suggest is use rclone sync with backup dir, then use rclone move to move all the files back at the end.
