In lieu of any other responses (so far), the latter (Replaces+Conflicts+Provides) seems to me to have the better semantics, although we're not talking about virtual packages (which policy 7.5 is pretty specific about). From reading the guide I can't decide either; unless anyone can advise, maybe we should go for Replaces+Breaks.
