I already did it, but not with rrdtool tools.

I followed this step :
1) create a empty rrdtool with all ds (new and old).
2) I dump previous created rrd (new and DS), extract header for DS
3) I dump old rrd (juste old DS)
4) I make a script (i haven't this anymore) to replace header and line 
in <database> section as follow :
     for each line use old row, and add <number of new DS> "<v>N/A</v>" 
of <row></row>" sections
5) I use rrdtool restore to recreate the merged database.

Be careful, back up your file before try, because replacing database can 
be corrupted...
