If the update is big enough, that a lot of packages require a rebuild,
using a custom tag seems to be the best approach, so if there is none,
ask of it. If there is no need for one, then the buildroot overwrite
approach seems to be good enough. Or what is the specific problem you
are seeing?

The advantage of using a custom tag is also, that it does not touch the
buildroots of all packages and therefore makes it possible to still push
updates for the affected dependent packages, if they are required to fix
a bug. Afaik currently kde does not use a custom tag, and therefore if
one wants to update a kde/qt dependent package, it would be build with
a incompatible kde/qt version and therefore cannot be pushed to stable.
