This entry has derived massively from the original subject.

The original report was: Fedora upgrade path is broken because a Fedora package
has been split, and a third-party package depended on it
=> NOTOURBUG, we've fixed our packages, and have no control of what
third-parties do. If our upgrade path was broken for a package as massively
deployed as liberation bugzilla would overflow with problem reports.
Third-party packages should not expect Fedora font package names to live
forever, and a release change is the right moment to break compat on this front

Then someone noticed the spec declared some explicit conflicts. As far as I
know they were added to help yum during groupinstalls (in the course of
resolving bug #474514). If you confirm they are not actually needed we'll
remove them.
