I think that what made things unclear to me was the "revert" part which just didn't fit my mental model of how things work. But under "Applying for an unblock" I now read "[...] revert [...] e.g. by using a new-version+reallyold-version versioning scheme". I've never seen that workaround before. So IIUC this suggests using a version like 4.8-2+really4.7.5? Are there other ways since it says "e.g."?
You can use any version you like that's bigger than what's currently in the archive. But to prevent epochs you want a version that's lower than the next upstream version. The +really scheme is quite common for this purpose.
