We are already discussing the inclusion of ladish:

No, during my tests I could not observe any of such symptoms, jackd2 and
jack-audio-connection-kit should be replace each other cleanly without
removing installed applicaitons. There was a transition period in debian
unstable and testing until all applications have been rebuilt
(application needed to pick up new dependencies), but this has recently
been finished and you should not encounter such problems at all.

Do you perhaps have some other 3rd party repositories enabled that might
interfere here?

Otherwise, please share a more detailed apt output and try to find out
why apt wants to remove packages.
